They grow alfalfa, corn, soybeans, wheat and cover crops to prevent erosion and build soil health. The Finger Family farm is 1800 acres, and they employee 20 people including family members.
The Finger Family Farm is celebrating their 150th anniversary this year. Franz Finger bought the 80 acre farm in 1872, but had to denounce the Emperor of Austria in 1877, then he became a U.S. Citizen to get the Homestead in 1878. Then Laurence and Mary Finger owned the farm from 1903 to 1945. Next Ervin and Grace Finger owned the property from 1945 to 1976. Jack and Nancy Finger bought the farm in 1976 and are in the process of turning it over to their son, Phil (Laura) Finger.  
Congratulations on 150 years on the farm, and for your service and hard work!
