Tschetter Hutterite Bruderhof, of the Schmiedeleut branch, located near Olivet, Hutchinson County, South Dakota, was founded in 1890 by members of the Wolf Creek colony. In 1918 they sold the property and founded the Rosebud Bruderhof near Redland, Alberta. In 1941 the original (South Dakota) site was bought and rebuilt by Brethren from the Barrickman commune near Headingly, Manitoba; fourteen families and David Decker, who was chosen to the ministry in 1931 and confirmed on 27 December 1936, formed the new Tschetter Bruderhof. Jacob Wipf was chosen preacher in 1948; he was the leader of a group of ten families from the Tschetter Bruderhof who established the Gracevale Bruderhof in Winfred, South Dakota, in 1950, where he was ordained. Paul Decker was chosen as preacher at Tschetter in 1952 and ordained in 1957. In 1958 the Tschetter Bruderhof had 40 baptized members in a population of 142. Gracevale had 30 baptized members.

Daughter colonies of Tschetter Colony include: Gracevale Hutterite Colony (Winfred, South Dakota, USA); Pembrook Hutterite Colony (Ipswich, South Dakota, USA); and Wolf Creek Hutterite Colony (Olivet, South Dakota, USA).

In 2017 Tschetter Colony was a Schmiedeleut Group 2 colony.
