Dave and Katie Hendrickson
The original Hendrickson Family Farm in Dassel, MN was purchased in 1920 by Ed and Anna Hasti. In 1945, after returning from WWII, Levi Hendrickson purchased the farm. Thirty-two years later, the ownership went to Dave. Over the years, various crops have been grown and dairy and hogs have been raised on the farm. Today Dave and Katie along with their three children Levi, Hannah, and Ruth raise seed corn, seed bean, and regular corn and beans. The children have also raised fresh market sweet corn for five years.
In the community, Dave has been active with Kingston Township Board, Meeker County FSA, Meeker County Farm Bureau, and Meeker County Corn Growers. He has also been involved with Dassel Creamery Board, Cokato Finnish Cemetery, Kingston Lions, Soil and Water Conservation, and the First Apostolic Lutheran Church. He and Katie are also Meeker County Fire Wardens. Both Levi and Hannah have been involved in FFA through Dassel-Cokato High School.
