Faces of MSGA: Flinton Stehr

January-February 2022

Flinton Stehr, a fifth-generation farmer from Goodhue County, has worked on his family farm since he was “knee-high.” Stehr said he always knew he wanted to be a farmer.

He grows corn and soybeans with his wife, Amanda, and brother Grady, along with help from Flinton’s mom, Marlis. Flinton and Grady began overseeing the farm full time in 2018, following the death of their father, Jon.

Stehr has a passion for farming and enjoys seeing his hard work grow into something tangible come harvest time.

“Harvest is my favorite time of the year,” he said, “because you get to see what you produce.”

Stehr recently joined the Goodhue County Corn and Soybean Growers board to become more involved at the local level. In addition to grassroots advocacy as a member of the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association, Stehr enjoys participating in local events, donations and promotions.

“It’s nice to know a little bit more of what’s going on and getting ideas of what we could try and do,” Stehr said, “and I like hearing the legislative updates.”

When he’s not helping on the corn and soybean board or working on the farm, Stehr hauls grain for hire and is also the Zumbrota/Mazeppa FFA Alumni chapter treasurer.
