Gustav Adolph Anderson, a well-known farmer of Sacred Heart township, was born April 8, 1878, on his father's farm in Sacred Heart township. Mr. Anderson has always remained on the home farm, except two years spent in clerking. He now owns 40 acres of the old homestead, where he specializes in fruit-raising. He has erected a fine, all modern cottage home across the road from the old home and there now resides. He makes a specialty of apples, plums and strawberries, and this season (1915) put on the market over 1,200 bushels of apples. At this writing he owns the largest apple orchard in Renville county. He received his early education at the district schools and completed his studies at the Renville high school. He learned the art of horticulture from his father. Mr. Anderson has been a member of the school board for fifteen years and is a stockholder in the Farmers' Elevator at Renville. He is a life member of the State Horticultural Society, where much information is gathered pertaining to fruit growing.

Mr. Anderson was married May 22, 1912, to Louis Stensrud, daughter of Ole Stensrud, of Sacred Heart township. She was born Feb. 27, 1886.
