Aadland Pipe Organ Co. is a family-owned business, established in South Dakota in 1971. Owners Art Aadland and Ellen Lovseth Aadland are both avid choral singers who met while attending college and singing together in a church choir.

The company is a full-service pipe organ shop, building new tracker (mechanical key-action) organs, and restoring older tracker-action organs. The company does tuning and servicing, and rebuilding/enlarging for all types of organs regardless of key-action types. They also create custom wooden church furnishings.
