We continue to be

family owned & operated since 1968

The business has grown significantly since Vernon P. Hofer and Joe Danny Hofer started Rural Manufacturing on Vernon’s family farm back in ’68. Hog farrowing crates were the main output of the plant in the beginning. As more equipment was developed and demand increased, employees were hired to help with the manufacturing process. In 1976, the company moved to the current location along US Highway 81 just north of Freeman, South Dakota.

Today, Rural Manufacturing proudly involves the next generations of family.
