LAMBRECHT DAIRY

KEWAUNEE, WISCONSIN

Lambrecht Dairy LLC in Kewaunee, Wisc. is a family farm run by second-generation farmer Jeff Lambrecht, with a third generation to follow. Jeff’s parents started their small dairy farm with 50 Holstein milk cows, introducing Jeff to a way of life that became his career and passion.

MAPLETON VALLEY FARMS

OCONOMOWOC, WISCONSIN

Pat and Phyllis Agnew and family continue a five-generation farming legacy at Mapleton Valley Farms in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, with their 55-cow dairy operation. Their small farm has deep roots in the local community in the heart of America’s Dairyland, and they’ve even branched out internationally with their dairy endeavors.

MAPLTWIN FARM

CASHTON, WISCONSIN

Chris Peterson, owner of Mapltwin Farm, said the farm was named when his parents, Jon and Sandra, started registering cows in 1960 at their 40 acre farm near Cashton, Wisconsin. Their chosen name – Mapletwin – was taken, so Jon dropped the “e” and it’s worked ever since.

HERRICKS DAIRY FARM

CASHTON, WISCONSIN

Herricks Dairy Farm in Cashton, Wisconsin, was established in 1912 by a newlywed couple. They passed the farm down for generations, and their grandson Jack Herrick, along with his family, has run the farm for the past 51 years.

MEFFERT HOMESTEAD DAIRY

WAUNAKEE, WISCONSIN

Meffert Homestead Dairy, in Waunakee, Wisconsin just a few miles north of Madison, is a beautiful 250-acre family farm owned by Jeff Meffert. In contrast to the developed surrounding areas, the farm looks much the same as when Jeff’s grandfather founded it in 1929. Jeff and his son Luke – representing the fourth generation on the farm – run the operation with the help of Jeff’s semi-retired father, Jack.

DALLMAN EAST RIVER DAIRY

NEAR BRILLION, WISCONSIN

Nick Dallman of Dallman East River Dairy near Brillion, Wisconsin, has been raising dairy cattle since even before he and his sister, Lindsay Hansen, took over the farm from their parents, Dan and Shirley Dallman. An original owner-member of Foremost Farms, the operation is very much a family affair. 

UNITED PRIDE DAIRY

PHILLIPS, WISCONSIN

United Pride Dairy in Phillips, Wisc. is the multi-family farm operation of 3rd and 4th generation farmers with a history dating back to 1911. It was officially founded in 1996 by neighbors Ed Jasurda and Jon Pesko. It is now a 2,540-cow dairy operation that also includes Jon’s son Jeremy Pesko and son-in-law Bill Harper in joint ownership.

GRASS RIDGE FARM

PITTSVILLE, WISCONSIN

Grass Ridge Farm, situated in the state’s scenic geographic center near Pittsville, Wisconsin is home to Matt Lippert and his two sons Paul and Carl. Matt’s grandparents, Charles and Augusta Lippert, founded the farm in 1918 with only 100 cows and 80 acres. After more than 100 years of work on the family farm, the Lipperts have grown their operation, with 600 registered Holstein and Jersey milk cows and farming about 1,500 acres.

ROBINWAY DAIRY, LLC

KIEL, WISCONSIN

Jay Binversie, owner of Robinway Dairy in Kiel, Wisc., is passionate about doing great things with dairy farming. When Jay was a freshman in high school, his father, Bob Binversie, owner of the farm at that time, took Jay to California where they visited a dairy farm. Young Jay was inspired by the efficiency and productivity of the farm. His mind was flooded with ideas for improvements of their then 200-cow operation. “Seeing that farm got me excited about running a dairy farm and doing it differently,” said Jay.

SCHEEVEL FAMILY FARMS

PRESTON, MINNESOTA

Scheevel Family Farms, a dairy operation run by Dave Scheevel and his wife Kathy, is located atop a windy ridge with a beautiful birds-eye view of the rolling landscape near Preston, Minn. Dave and Kathy, along with the help of one full-time employee and up to three part-time employees, oversee the farm operations.

DARITA HOLSTEINS

GOSHEN, INDIANA

At the 150-acre Darita Holsteins farm in Goshen, Indiana, Darrell and Bonita Richard and their youngest son Robert greet every morning without an alarm clock. They’ve been alarm-clock free since they installed milking robots in the spring of 2019.
