In 1890 Gust E. Hagert came to the United States from Sweden at 16 years of age.


In 1905, Gust moved from the city of Emerado to Section 10 in Pleasant View Township, Emerado, ND and worked on his uncle Oscar Hagert's farm.


Gust purchased the land he had been renting and farming.


After running the farm for over 40 years Gust Hagert retired and passed Hagert Farms down to one of his sons, Curtis Hagert Sr.


Curtis Hagert Sr. bought the family farm from his dad, Gust.


Throughout 1968-1974 Curtis Hagert Sr., Curt Hagert Jr., and David Hagert officially named the farm "Hagert Farms."


At 62 years old, Curtis Hagert Sr. retired from farming in 1982 and two of his sons, Curtis Jr. and David purchased the farm.

The seed conditioning plant was a dream of Curtis Hagert Jr’s. and the process of building began in 1993.  By November 1994, Hagert Seed was up and running on Hagert Farms.


As a sophomore in college, Jared Hagert began his career and started farming with his dad, Curtis Jr. He farmed during college breaks, graduating with his degree in Ag Systems Management at NDSU.


David retired from the family farm and rented his land out to his brother Curtis Jr.


After farming for over 40 years (all of his life) and conditioning seed for over 13 years, Curtis Jr. retired and sold the operations of Hagert Farms and Hagert Seed to Jared and his wife, Brandie.  Of course, Curt can still be found working in a tractor.
