The Makens family would like to inform you that Oak Tree Lodge and Oak Tree Farms has a new operator on our family farm and at our family’s hunting lodge in Clark, South Dakota. The Makens family has decided to shift to a landowner position, leasing to a tenant operator.

Jeremy Van Der Vegt is now running his own businesses on our family farm. He began farming operations on our organic family farm in the spring of 2019 under the name Resurrection Farms Inc. In the fall of 2019, Jeremy began operations at our resort named Oak Tree Lodge on our family farm, under the name Oak Tree Retreat & Resort Inc. We wish Jeremy the best success in his new endeavors!

All the best!
