Registered Charolais Herd
Lenz Farms is a diversified multi-generational crop and livestock farm that operates out of Wray, Colorado. Lenz Farms is owned and operated by partners: Mike Lenz, Jim Lenz, George Lenz II, Marty Buoy, Brian Meisner, Bevan Lenz, Corwin Lenz and Russell Heier. Together, along with six full time employees, we farm 5000 acres of irrigated sand hills farm land, 1200 acres of dry land ground and run cattle on 5500 acres of prime sand hill grassland. Crops grown include: corn, wheat, edible beans, yellow peas and potatoes. The potato operation, operating under the name Lenz Family Farms, is enhanced by a wash and packing shed that allows Lenz Family Farms to provide a complete line of yellow fleshed potatoes for re-packers and retailers across the nation. Lenz Farms also has registered Charolais cattle herd that operates under Sand Creek Charolais http://sandcreekcharolais.com.
The unique difference of Lenz Farms is that all partners are working partners that have day to day responsibilities. From checking sprinklers to fixing wind mills, you can find any of the partners with their hands dirty and their wheels turning. During harvest, ”busy”, is an understatement. Harvesters, trucks, combines, tractors, the wash shed, and the office are humming along at a brisk pace, trying to beat the weather and winter. However, even when things are busy, we all try to make time for anyone who drops in with a question or a request. “PEOPLE ARE OUR PRIORITY” is more than a slogan, it is the reason that we do what we do!
