History

Family business values, big business coverage

What began as a modest family business in 1938 has actively expanded into a dynamic, responsive company that serves customers throughout North Dakota and Montana, as well as most of Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

Resilience, commitment and determination define us

In 2005, our resolve as a company was put to the test when our entire operation burned down in a fire. Everything was reduced to ashes. All we had left was our fleet of transport vehicles and our employees’ commitment to continue to provide exceptional products, service and value to our customers.

We would not be held down. We rose from tragedy and rebuilt our warehouses, relocated our offices, and resumed operations. It would have been easy to give up, but instead, we gritted our teeth, dusted ourselves off, and kept pushing forward—because it was the right thing to do.

During our rebuilding, we are proud to say that we retained all our employees and all our customers—every single one. The relationships that we had worked so hard to build with our customers, the banks, and with our suppliers held strong.

Looking back, moving forward

Coming together and forging ahead after that fateful fire only made us stronger. The experience shaped us into who we are today. As we continue to grow, we proudly continue to serve with the same determination for excellence that got us here.

A partnership that further strengthens us

For decades, we have operated as a family-owned company. Many of us have worked together for so long that we consider each other family. In 2014, we made the decision to expand our family when we sold our business to Parkland Fuel, Canada's largest and one of North America's fastest growing independent marketers of fuel and petroleum products.

This purchase did not change who we are—our people, our products, our services, or our brand. Through Parkland, Farstad Oil has further strengthened our ability to supply and distribute millions of gallons of gasoline, distillates, propane, and lubricants throughout the Midwestern U.S.

Our history includes you—thank you

When you succeed as a business because you are getting the products and services you need—where and when you need them—our history adds another success story. Thank you for being a part of our history.
