Gutknecht Family Farms continues to remain a significant farming operation by focusing on family values. Our long history has continued to be a source of pride and motivation that we strive to pass on to our future generations. In today's society we believe more than ever these principles must be passed on to not only our family but employees, friends, community and others who may join us in these pursuits.
Honesty, responsibility, and accountability are the three core values that we actively instill throughout our operation and daily life. From an honest hand shake to helping a neighbor in need, Gutknecht Family Farms members pride ourselves on quality hard work to better ourselves and our community. We also strive to educate consumers and the general public about agriculture and the practices we use that make our industry great.
Innovation and technology are two key factors that Gutknecht Family Farms utilize in our day to day practices to produce a higher grade of product. GPS and satellite technology have made major strides to ensure efficiency and production throughout the operation. Never being satisfied with the minimum propels Gutknecht Family Farms to implement new ideas and advancements into the future.

Swine Manure Fertilization
To complement our row crop operation, GFF also raises swine. These two operations fit well together as the hogs are fed corn produced, and the crops are fertilized with the hog manure. This natural fertilizer alternative is a great source for plant nutrients and can be provided by GFF. If you would prefer swine manure over other current fertilizers to enrich your property, GFF can provide.
