Johnson Family Farms

Faribault County
2017

The extended families of brothers Scott and Charlie Johnson co-operate Johnson Family Farms. Charlie and Scott’s grandfather started the farm in the early 1900s. The farm was passed down to Scott and Charlie’s father, Bob, and eventually to the brothers. Now the tradition of passing on the farm to the next generation is continuing as Darin and Amber have established their careers at Johnson Farms.

In addition to their farming business the Johnson families run a Dekalb/Asgrow/Mycogen/Stine seed dealership and a trucking company. The families also sell precision planting equipment and Meridian seed tenders.

The Charles and Deb Johnson family includes daughter Nicki and her husband, Paul Dambowy, and their children, Brennen and Lola; son Darin, his wife, Rachel, and their kids, Tyra, Lexi and Aaron; and daughter Missy, and her husband, Brad Roux, and their children, Esme and Emmett.

The Scott and Linda Johnson family includes their daughter Amber and her husband, Andy Cords, along with their children, Kylin, Kenlie and Regan; daughter, Lindsay and her friend Jordan Drager.

Charlie Johnson is board chairman of CFS Cooperative; Scott serves as president of Benco Electric. Darin is a board member of the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association and Amber is President of the Wells Area Chamber of Commerce. The Johnson families support their local FFA chapters.
