About Boerboom Ag Resources
Boerboom Ag Resources is a third-generation family farm focusing on raising quality and nutritious pork. Boerboom Ag is owned and operated by Greg and Paula Boerboom and their children Laurie, Mike, and Matt.
The Boerboom farm originated in 1936 when John C and Thresa Boerboom purchased the home farm in Stanley Township, Lyon County, MN. John and Thresa had a diversified farm typical of the era and they raised corn, oats, alfalfa, flax, dairy cows for milk, beef cattle, laying hens, sheep, and pigs. They also raised their seven children including Greg on the home farm.
In 1981 John and Thresa retired from farming and Greg and Paula moved into the original farm house and took over farm operations. Greg and Paula continued raising cattle, pigs, corn and soybeans but Greg’s passion had always been in raising pigs. In 1992 Greg and Paula expanded the pig operation and built the Home Sow Farm which has paved the way for Boerboom Ag to become the farm it is today.
Today Boerboom Ag’s operations revolve around raising pigs from birth to market. In 2012 Boerboom Ag built a feed mill which has allowed them to buy corn directly from local farmers and have more control in the feed that is being fed to the pigs. In 2017 Boerboom Ag added the Redwood Sow Farm – an open-pen gestation sow farm.
Boerboom Ag employs about 40 people and works with about 35 area farmers to contract grow pigs.
