A Culture of Minnesota Wrestling

The Pfarr brothers grew up on a family farm just a short drive down Highway 169 from the Twin Cities, along scenic bends in the Minnesota River near Le Sueur, Minn. Among about 800 acres of crops and livestock, a repurposed machine shed became a laboratory for producing collegiate wrestlers. While their oldest brother, Matthew, excelled wrestling at St. John’s (MN), Brett Pfarr and Chris Pfarr have carved out a wrestling portion of their family’s University of Minnesota legacy, one that includes all four Pfarr children and their dad all attending the U.

In the latest episode of “Faces of Fearless” presented by Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Minnesota, travel to the family farm to meet the Pfarrs and get an inside look at the structure that traded in the farming equipment for wrestling equipment, without losing the corn-burning stove that kept the room warm for winter training, as well as a look into the family that’s used wrestling as a vehicle to grow.
