Sturgeon Creek Hutterite Bruderhof of the Schmiedeleut branch, located four miles north of Headingly, Manitoba, was founded in 1938 by eleven families with 75 souls who left the Blumengard Bruderhof with their preacher Samuel Kleinsasser, who was chosen a minister in 1933 and ordained in 1942. In 1954, when Sturgeon Creek had a population of 158 with 60 baptized members, a group of 13 families with 73 persons with the minister Jakob Kleinsasser (chosen in 1946 and ordained in 1954) left to found the Crystal Spring Bruderhof, 6 miles southeast of St. Agathe, Manitoba. In 1958 the Sturgeon Creek Bruderhof had 32 baptized members and a population of 98, with Samuel Kleinsasser and Elias Mandel (chosen in 1955) as preachers.

Agathe, Manitoba, Canada); Hidden Valley Hutterite Colony (Austin, Manitoba, Canada); Delta Hutterite Colony (Austin, Manitoba, Canada); and Meadow Lane Hutterite Colony (Headingly, Manitoba, Canada).
