Todd, Michelle, Matt, Clint and Cody Andresen

Becker County
2017

The Andresens are the third generation of their family to farm the land in Becker County. The operation began as a dairy farm but was switched to beef in the late 1980s. In addition to a 140 Red Angus cow/calf herd the Andresens grow corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa. The family grew strawberries until 2014. The family also does some custom farming for neighbors as well as custom welding.

Todd and Michele work full time on the farm and take care of the cattle. They help their sons Matt, Clint and Cody with their business, Triple A Hay, selling small, square hay bales. The boys also help full time on the farm during the summer.

Todd is on the Hamden Township Board, the local FSA board, the Holy Rosary School Advisory Committee and the Detroit Lakes Wrestling Booster Committee. Michelle volunteers her time as a chaperone for Holy Rosary School field trips and other school functions. Todd and Michelle were named Becker County-Lake Agassiz Emerging Leaders in 2008 and both are supporters of FFA

The Andresens are avid hunters and outdoors people. They are members of Holy Rosary Church.
