Stolzenburg Harvesting

History

Stolzenburg Harvesting was started in 1933 by Jack Stolzenburg and his two brothers, Harry and Ralph.  In 1933, Jack took the first Pull Type Combine out of Cloud County Kansas and started harvesting in southern Kansas.  Soon Jack married Bessie Stolzenburg and they had two boys George and Gene who helped run the combines and trucks.  George and Gene both carried on the tradition by starting their own harvesting crews.

In 1972, George married Mary Branick from Renville, MN and together they had three wonderful children, Lynette, Ann & Daniel.  All three kids learn to drive the combine as early as 7 years old and eventually starting hauling grain into the elevators.  Sadly, in 2007 Mary Stolzenburg passed away to cancer, but she still lives on in our memories and left us with wonderful oil paintings she made throughout the years.

Stolzenburg Harvesting is owned and operated by George and Daniel Stolzenburg.  Stolzenburg Harvesting owns three late model CaseIH combines and 35ft MacDon headers.  The harvest season begins in southern Oklahoma in May and finishes up in South Dakota in late October or early November.
