One hundred years of farming

The Muhlbeier farm north of Castor reaches the 100 years of farming on the land homesteaded by Randal’s grandfather, Karl Muhlbeier.  On hand for the milestone were, from the left,  back row: Randal Muhlbeier, partner, Tara Muhlbeier,  son Frazer Muhlbeier, Rick Strankman, MLA and Cody van Zandbergen (Tara’s son). Front row: Erma and Charlie Muhlbeier, (youngest child of Karl and Annie) and Julia Gullekson (second youngest child of Karl and Annie).
The descendants of Karl and Annie Muhlbeier celebrated 100 years of farming at the original homestead on Aug. 8, 2015 with roughly 160 people in attendance.
Karl originally started a farm south of Veteran  but traded in 1915 for the place north of Castor. He married Annie Hepp in 1918.
The farm was passed down to their youngest son Charles Muhlbeier and his wife Erma.  Randal, the oldest son of Charles and Erma took over the farm.  Randal continues to farm the land with his partner Tara Mulbeier and her children with the help of Randal’s son, Frazier and step-son, Cade van Zandbergen who intend to keep the farm in the family for many years to come.
