LOCATED THROUGHOUT THE MIDWEST
MEET THE MEMBERS
Foremost Farms’ members are independent business owners located in seven Midwest states,
and they have unique and special stories to tell.
MAPLETON VALLEY FARMS
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.
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
MEFFERT HOMESTEAD DAIRY
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
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
ROBINWAY DAIRY, LLC
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
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.
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.
