Farmington Businesses

Crest Exteriors

In 2001, Danny Bowling moved to Minnesota and founded Crest Exteriors. Soon after, he brought on Mike McClain and Scott Hurm as managers. Through the years, Crest has grown to be a highly respected general contractor specializing in roofing, siding, windows, gutters, decks, interior remodeling, new construction and insurance claims. None of this would be possible without their exceptional team of staff members.

Crest is proud to have office staff Katie Wutschke and Alicia Raway assisting in every detail of their projects to help them run smoothly. Bob George, Robby Hanson, and Matt Williams are their outstanding “outside guys,” which means they are the ones who make repairs and oversee projects with precision. It’s both the big and little things that bring a group together to work as one.

Crest’s employees not only interact with each other as a team, but they also include their customers and vendors in their team approach as well. It is this deep sense of trust, skills, camaraderie, and everyone working toward a common goal that has created so many satisfied customers.

History of Farmington

In 1856, James C. Dow, editor of the Dakota Weekly Journal, a territorial newspaper published in Hastings, wrote this, “Farmington is situated on the Vermillion River, about fifteen miles from Hastings. This place is rightly named, for it looks like a village of farms. Good soil, good water, good timer and intelligent citizens is their wealth.”

The city of Farmington, named after Farmington, New York, is one of Dakota County’s oldest communities and was on the map before Minnesota became a state.

Irving Todd, publisher of the Hastings Conserver, recorded these observations in 1863:

“Farmington seems to us to be suitably named, being a vast conglomeration of farms and farm houses. We could not but notice the thrifty look which bespoke the careful husbandman.”

The “vast conglomeration of farms and farm houses” would inevitably be platted in 1864. A business district, with a railroad depot to serve its needs, was constructed a year later. Schools, churches, and community organizations were established to meet the necessities of an increasing population.

On the first of April 1997, Farmington’s municipal government marked its 125th year of serving the needs and interests of the community.
