Olson & Sons Excavating

Tim Olson and Sons


About Us

Olson and Sons Excavating was developed in 1972 by Butch (Jerome) Olson. Butch was the father of four sons, hence the name Olson and Sons. In 1980 a shop and office was built two blocks east of highway #32 on Albert Avenue in Fertile, Minnesota. In 1985, Tim, the eldest son, bought the business from Butch. The business has grown to include a backhoe/loader, skid steer, semi-truck and trailer, and all tools to do an array of jobs. Projects include septic systems, waterlines, culvert installation, basements, footings, land clearing, ditch cleaning and landscaping.

The business continues to be managed by by Tim and Vickie Olson and is licensed and bonded to design and install all types of septic systems for the state of Minnesota. Tim is also a restricted master plumber with fifty years of experience in all types of excavating throughout northwest Minnesota. We are also a Ritchie Livestock waterer dealer. Our septic systems include trenches, at-grades, pressure beds, mounds and holding tanks.

Tim will gladly do free site evaluations and estimates for all building projects.
