Sustaining a family business: Minnesota logging video from Red Wing Shoes

This short video, produced by the folks at Red Wing Shoes, gets into the woods with the Lovdahl logging company, based in Effie, MN. It’s fun to watch, and presents a different side of loggers than many of us tend to think of.

  1. This is a good and hard working family.
    I have known and respected three generations of The Lovdahl family.
    We wish them continued success.
    Great video!

  2. Good thoughts from Gerald Holt, representing another long-term family that established themselves in the Bigfork area. Lovdahls have persevered through their initiative and ingenuity (called hard work) even during declines in the timber industry. Hats off to them!
