Huisman Farms: Think Big And Go Big With Schweiss Doors

Fairfax — When you farm big with big equipment, you need big machine sheds with big doors. Schweiss Doors filled that bill through the years by manufacturing three large bifold liftstrap doors for Huisman Farms of Atwater, Minn.

50-foot by 18-foot bifold liftstrap door

Jim and Tim Huisman work the 3,000-plus acre corn and soybean farm. Tim's father, Jim, first contacted Schweiss Doors nearly 20 years ago to order his first bifold liftstrap door, measuring 36 feet wide and 17 feet high. As the operation grew from its beginnings in 1968, additional buildings and larger farm equipment led to the need for larger doors on a 100-foot by 225-foot cold storage shed. The first door measured 45 feet by 18 feet and the third oor, installed just last year, is 50 feet wide and 18 feet tall. Read more
