Kemps salutes local family farmers.

Meet the Matthees Family

Member of the farmer-owned cooperative that owns Kemps, Steve Matthees has dairying is in his blood. Steve is a fourth-generation dairy farmer, and owner and operator of Lone Oak Dairy in Minnesota. Today, Steve milks 200 Holsteins and farms 750 acres in partnership with his son, Scott. Steve’s wife Mary, daughter and son-in-law also contribute time on the family farm.

The Matthees invite University of Minnesota exchange students to live and work on the farm through the Minnesota Agricultural Student Trainee program each year. “This is just one way we give back,” Steve says. “It’s a very rewarding experience for them and us.”
