Dutch Charley Company, Inc runs niche cattle and cropping operations and performs custom crop production.
Dutch Charley is owned by Ryan Jepsen and Kristine Jepsen, who spent 10 years building a regional grass-fed beef brand, growing sales from two beef to more than 4,000 annually.
Our work connected us to innovators across the agricultural community and gave us the opportunity to move further into production with the sale of the retail beef brand in 2015.
Where did the name come from?
Dutch Charley is a rural township and watershed in Cottonwood County, Minnesota, where founding partner Kristine Jepsen's family put down roots in the 1800s. Then as now, successful farming was a matter of adapting technologies and strategies as opportunities and times changed.
