Faces of MSGA: Noah Hultgren

May-June 2024

Inspired by his capability to feed people with crops that he grows, Noah Hultgren knew he wanted to farm full time on his fourth-generation family farm.

Farming is a Hultgren family affair. Noah grows soybeans, corn, sugar beets, kidney beans, alfalfa, sweet corn and peas with his wife, Paula; their children Ella, Samantha and Hannah; his parents, Duane and Nancy Hultgren; brother Nate Hultgren and his family.

“We are lucky enough to live on the same farm site as my parents and brother’s family,” Hultgren said. “It’s almost like our own little village.”

Hultgren says they have an outlook for a fifth generation to take over the family farm.

MSGA member Noah Hultgren (far right) is a family farmer and past president of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association.

On top of farming full time, Hultgren graduated from St. Cloud Technical College with a two-year degree in Sales and Management. He’s also a licensed real estate broker.

When he’s not in the field or on the farm working, he’s volunteering with the Kandiyohi County Corn & Soybean Growers board, the Bethesda Foundation Board and Kandiyohi County Economic Development Committee Operations Board. He also sat on the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) for nine years and served as president from 2014-15.

“I am a member of MSGA, along with MCGA, because I feel strongly that these organizations are good advocates for agriculture and rural Minnesota,” Hultgren said.
