Nesemeier Farm/Valley Ridge Simmentals is a family farm run by Mark and Mary Nesemeier. Mark has worked on the family farm since he was a teenager. Mary, in addition to helping with the farm work, is employed at the US Post Office in Casselton.

They have three children, Nicole, Michael, and Amanda, who will come home to help out with things when time allows. Their oldest daughter, Nicole, lives in Galchutt, ND with her husband, Larry, and their daughter MarLee. Nicole runs the family bar, The Ringneck Bar & Grill in Leonard, ND while trying to keep up with MarLee. Their son, Michael, lives in Leonard with his wife, Kimberly, and their son, Landon, and is an engineer in Fargo and continues to help out on the farm. Their youngest, Amanda, lives near Boston, MA where she is the Manager of Global Patient Services, IT for a pharma company. She still helps on the farm when she can get back to ND, and is proud to show off pictures of her cows to her city friends!

Mark & Mary's grandson Landon, also loves being on the farm helping out his papa, and doesn't let a little chilly weather stop him from ranching!​ Their granddaughter MarLee enjoys the cows and getting dirty like a true farm girl, now she just needs to get her father used to the cows.
