“Taking good care of the land and the livestock is how we make our living. Being a part of agriculture is very important to all of us,” AARON KLUIS, MURRAY COUNTY FARM FAMILY
By Norma Dittman Murray County News Staffwriter Bonded by love of family, and the hard, but rewarding, work of being dedicated to agricultural production, the Kluis Family, Chandler, Minnesota, was honored as the 2013 Murray County Farm Family of the Year on Thursday, August 8th, at Farmfest.

Currently farming together are brothers Mike and Aaron Kluis. They are proud to be third-generation farmers. Their grandparents, Felix and Henrietta Kluis began farming in Fenton Towship, Chandler, Minnesota, during the 1940s.

Mike and Aaron’s parents, Jim and Joan Kluis, took over the farming in the 1960’s. They moved to Slayton in 2009. Jim, who retired from farming in 2009, continues to help with the farming during spring planting and fall harvest. He sells crop insurance through Crop Insurance Specialists.
