Larry and Candy Schafer
Larry and Candy Schafer ran a diversified farming operation over the years in northwestern Minnesota’s Red Lake County. They milked cows, raised sheep, hogs and beef cattle. They grew corn, wheat, barley and hay. In 2010, the Schafers sold their farm to their son, Matthew, who currently runs the operation.
The Schafer family includes Kathleen, Matthew, Angela and Marybeth, along with grandchildren Charlie, Jackson, Emily and Olivia.
The Schafers are members of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Red Lake Falls. Candy is employed at the Thief River Falls Care Center in the activities department. In his farming years, Larry’s favorite tractor was the Allis Chalmers.
