Blumengart, a Hutterite Bruderhof, six miles (10 km) south west of Plum Coulee, Manitoba, in the 1940s owned a little over 4,000 acres of land, which had formerly belonged to Mennonites who migrated to Mexico. It was settled by the Hutterites in 1922, when Johann Hofer moved to the site with 15 families. In 1933 Samuel Kleinsasser was chosen preacher. In 1938 he with 11 families founded the Sturgeon Creek Bruderhof four miles north of Headingly, Manitoba. In 1942 Jakob Hofer was chosen preacher. In 1947 Blumengart numbered 118 souls, of whom 47 were baptized members.

Daughter colonies of Blumengart Hutterite Colony include: Blumengard (Faulkton, South Dakota); Sturgeon Creek (Headingly, Manitoba); Pembina (Darlingford, Manitoba); and Blue Clay (Arnaud, Manitoba).

In 2017 the colony was a member of the Schmiedeleut Group 2.
