History of FBF

Field Brothers Farms is a 5th generation family farm based out of Stephen, MN in the northern Red River Valley, which raises wheat, corn, soybeans, edible beans and sugar beets. By Utilizing professional business techniques, hard work and dedication, Field Brothers Farms has rapidly expanded to over 10,000 acres, and they take seriously the responsibility of being good stewards to the land we farm, as they intend to be in agriculture for the long term .

John B. Field began farming with his brother after returning from World War II and started what we know today as Field Brothers Farms.  As their sons became involved in farming, John and his brother decided to farm separately. John B., his wife Betty, and their son William remained Field Brothers Inc.

Today, William’s two sons Scott and John Field, carry on the tradition of hard work, pride and dedication to the land they farm.  John and Scott have worked on the family farm since they were old enough to operate machinery. They both had a desire to farm, but under their father’s advisement, first received a college education. Scott and John both attended the University of Minnesota where they received their degrees.

Scott worked for a commodities broker at the Minneapolis Grain Exchange for Sorensen-Yaggie Commodities. Scott and a friend of his, Bruce Yaggie, then started a grain marketing business, which is now known as Professional Grain Marketing Services, LLCC (ProMark Grain). Scott is now working from an office in Stephen, while maintaining affiliated offices in he Twin Cities and Breckenridge, Minnesota.

After graduating from the University of Minnesota, John returned to the Stephen area to help with the farming operation while working on a Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of North Dakota.

Together, the Field Brothers offer assets that set them apart from other farming operations. They take a great deal of pride in being the next generation of Field Brothers Farms and look forward to living and farming in the Red River Valley.
