LAKEFIELD — Richard Kopies founded The “80” in 1921, and after 100 years, the farm remains in the descendents of his family, making it a true Minnesota Century Farm.

Richard owned the land alone for 46 years, and starting in 1967, co-owned it with his wife Charolette Kopies. Their daughter, Berniece Pauling, and her husband Alvin Pauling, assumed ownership in 1981 and their ownership continues to this day.
