About Us:

Shlagel Farms is celebrating our 101rst year of continuous farming this year.  Russell Shlagel is the third generation of Shlagels to farm this same land.  His grandfather; Otto came to America because of advertisements by the German American Colonization Company for good farmland, and he bought the original tract in North Waldorf in 1912.  Sadly, he died within a few years while clearing land in the pasture.  His wife also passed within 6 weeks and left 5 minor children on the farm.  Of those, George; who was 12 at the time, was determined to stay on the farm and make it profitable.  Except for a stint in the US Army George spent his entire life on the farm and loved the land until his last breath.  He passed his love of the land on to his son Russell who farms fulltime along with sons.
