Froese Heritage

Harvesting in the Froese family goes all the way back to the 1940s. Marvin Froese started custom harvesting in the early 1940's before there was really a custom harvesting industry.  His younger brother Eddie Froese then built a tractor in 1944 that could go highway speeds and then shift down and go right to work pulling a Minneapolis-Moline pull-type combine.  In 1946 Pete Froese built one of the first ever self-propelled forage harvesters. It was the forerunner of the Farmhand. Since then we have continued with the tradition of ingenuity and building some of our own equipment to stay ahead of the current standard. This includes everything from that first self-propelled forage harvester to the most recent model, built in 2000, with 650hp. We have also built our own travel trailers that have all of the comforts of home. Including a 27ft. kitchen/living room with full size appliances, 2 full size bathrooms, a second story for the kids to sleep  in and plenty of storage. We have built several 36ft. live floor silage trailers with hydraulically powered axles on the rear of the trailer to assist in muddy conditions. There are countless other innovative pieces of equipment that have been built over the years that continue to make Froese Brothers unique. Waldo Froese followed in the footsteps of four of his older brothers and began harvesting in 1956. He had six sons, all of whom were involved in the business to different extents. He has since retired but had two sons who grew the business to much of what it is today. Ray who started in 1977 and Larry who started in 1979.   Larry retired after the 2012 season.  Today Froese Brothers is run by Ray and Beau, who has been out on the harvest run each year of his life and started with his own equipment in 1999.  We have been blessed with the opportunity to continue in the custom harvesting business and choose to give God all of the glory for it.
