Alfred bought the 160 acres joining the farm to the south in 1965. This place was also farmed by his grandfather, Hans Jensen. In 1969, Ken bought this place so that is the 3rd generation of Claussen’s to farm this land. All of the “Claussens” are members of Our Saviors Lutheran Church at Rock Valley, Iowa.
