About Tom Murphy

Representative Tom Murphy represents the east side of Ottertail County and a portion of Douglas County.

Tom grew up on a dairy farm in Scott County, MN with seven siblings. He later received a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Mankato State University and spent eight years as a sales representative for an agriculture products company in southwest Minnesota. In 1992, along with his wife Betty, moved to Otter Tail County to start a dairy supply sales business which they sold after 26 years of business serving our area dairy farmers.

Currently, they own and operate MinStart Ag Products, focused on bringing new technologies and products to area retailers and growers and are active members at St. James Catholic Church in Maine, MN.

Tom and Betty have lived at that same rural residence in Maine Township since coming to the area and enjoying all the amenities Otter Tail County has to offer.
