Mark grew up in Chaska, MN where he had a small farm and was very active in  4H and cattle showing .  After high school he went to college to begin studies in Animal Science.  However within two years his life brought changes, which included getting married and moving in a different direction.  He began his studies for the Office of the Holy Ministry.  He has been an a pastor in a Bible based Lutheran church (The Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod) for 27 years.  In 2001 we purchased a small farm north of St. Croix Falls.  It was here that we would begin our own Hereford farm.  Big Rock Creek flows through our land, so we decided to name our Hereford farm "Christ the Rock Creek Farm"  Now he has come full circle, starting out farming and now able to serve the Lord  plus raise cattle.  That is why our farm promotes our Lord, our Lutheran Church, and the cattle we love. We have great compassion for our animals and they are treated with much care and respect.  It is a great  form of therapy and enjoyment for the two of us.

We have gotten many good bulls from Gottschalk Polled Herefords, and Larson Hereford Farms.
Our most recent bull was purchased from Dakitch Hereford Farms. Dakitch 19T Tundra  was shown at the North Star Classic where he won Bull Calf Champion and was Reserve Champion Bull in the Open show.
