Jerry Ramerth, owner and operator of Ramerth Aerial Spraying passed away at Sunset Hospice Cottage, Worthington, MN, on Thursday, February 28th.

He, and his wife, Cleone, established Ramerth Aerial Spraying in 1975 in Graham Lakes Township, Section 7, rural Fulda, where he constructed a runway for his aerial business.

The aerial service sprayed thousands of acres of crop land, CRP ground, pastures, and building sites in a six county area. Ramerth Aerial Spraying was also hired many times to spray outside of the state of Minnesota.

As his spraying business grew, Ramerth developed Ramerth Ag Service and began selling pesticides and fertilizers to area farmers as well as performing ground applications of these products.

Ramerth family members worked together in the business.

In 1994, Ramerth Ag Service moved from its rural location to Front Street in Fulda. The business continued to expand and began selling sprayer parts, garden supplies, softener salt, propane refills and offered United Postal Service pickups.

During October of 2004, Jerry’s son, Doug, purchased the inventory of Appel’s Hardware from Denny and Deb Appel and moved the inventory into the expanded Ramerth Ag Service building on Front Street. Ramerth Hardware held its grand opening in March of 2005. The two businesses operated simultaneously until 2009.
