In 1938, Kristensen began farming on the corner of Nicollete Avenue and Highway 13.
Kris Kristensen and Einar Hansen operated a dairy farm with a milk route in South Minneapolis. They had two delivery trucks, one of which was driven by Savage Mayor Janet Williams’ father, Jens Bohn Sr.
Bohn continued delivering milk on the South Minneapolis route until 1953, when raw milk could no longer be delivered in Minnesota.
In 1941, he purchased a farm in Savage and moved Lynnhurst Dairy there the following year.
The Bohns continued operating Lynnhurst Dairy until 1968, when the cows were sold at auction.
The 5.7-acre property includes a hen house, machine shed, storage shed, barn and outdoor riding arena, according to the realty listing.
The two-story farmhouse was built in 1920. It includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
