This century farm has been in the Petersen family since the 1850’s, and for the last three generations has passed down from mother to daughter, which is unusual for an Iowa farm. This side of the family has its roots in the Schleswig-Holstein dairy area of Northern Germany. The Petersen’s presently milk 100 cows. The barn is owned by Davis and Amy Petersen.
