Rosmann Family Farms, a business owned and operated by Ron and Maria Vakulskas Rosmann and sons, is located four miles northwest of Harlan in Shelby County. Ron has farmed this land where he was raised ever since his graduation from Iowa State University in 1973. Rosmann Family Farms, 700 acres of corn, oats, soybeans, barley, popcorn, turnips, pasture and hay, is certified organic by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. The farm has had its beef operation since 1998 and certification for pork since 2004. The cow-calf operation (90 cows – Red Angus) is an important part of the organic picture. The Rosmanns strongly support the use of rotational grazing practices. They also have a 60-sow certified organic farrow-to-finish hog operation and raise organic chickens annually.
