About Us

Welcome to our site!   We invite you to stop by anytime in person to see our cattle and to visit with our family.  We are very enthusiastic about American agriculture and passionate about the beef industry.   We enjoy raising, showing, and talking about Shorthorns.

It all started over 150 years ago when Terry’s great grandparents Martin and Mary homesteaded on the current location in Faxon Township in Sibley County.   They had emigrated from Ireland via Boston to find a better life for their children.  They carved out their homestead in an area known as the “Big Woods” just north of the Minnesota River Valley.  Martin fought for the Union in the Civil War and returned home to raise his family, and expand his farming operation.

Over the years the farm supported several generations of the Morrison family.   For many years it was one of the larger dairy farms in the area.   Terry’s parents John and Helen also enjoyed raising and showing Clydesdale horses.   The entire family has many connections throughout the United States and Canada because of this passion.   Today several cousins are involved in showing horses and working for Budweiser driving the eight horse hitch.

Shorthorn cattle became a part of the farm in 1992.   Terry purchased several heifers from his uncle Art Berger and they bought their first bull from Jane Waldron in that same year.  Since then our operation has expanded to an all registered herd.    Today you will find many high quality females with some very impressive bloodlines.   Our focus is on raising cattle that we are proud of.

Today our farm consists of over 40 cow/calf pairs along with a corn, soybean, and alfalfa operation.   Faxon Creek is one of the few farms in the township that still raises cattle.   We are all involved—whether it is calving season or show season.   We appreciate the many friendships we have made throughout the United States through showing, buying and selling Shorthorns.

If you are interested in purchasing show cattle, replacement heifers, or your future herd sire, you will find what you need at Faxon Creek.   We even feed out our own steers, so if you would like to purchase fresh and delicious beef for your family give us a call.   Stop by anytime to talk cattle—you are always WELCOME!
