The Stahl Farm is a Fourth Generation Century Farm located in Grundy County Iowa, just east of Wellsburg.
Rodney started farming the family farm with his father in 1988 after returning from serving in the US Army for four years.
Rodney & Marcia were married on the farm on July 24, 2004 and moved to the farm in 2005. Marcia started a floral shop on the farm named "The Flower Farm" (that has since moved to downtown Wellsburg to create a larger event space on the farm).
In 2007, four acres of land was extremely wet from heavy spring rains which prevented the land to be planted until June. Rodney's long standing idea of creating a corn maze came to fruition. That fall many schools and after school programs came to test out their skills at navigating their way through the maze.
More interesting, however, was that many of the children were also extremely interested in the feeder cattle, as many had never been that close to farm animals before, even though we live in such a rural state. Rodney and Marcia decided to add a few animals to fill the need to introduce young children to farm animals. It started with some pigs, chickens and goats, and has grown every year into more than 100 animals, and a family entertainment center.
