Who We Are?

Brent & I dairy farm in partnership with his parents outside Rockford.  We milk ~70 cows, which means we are on-call, 24/7/365.  We farm ~300 acres that raises corn and alfalfa to feed the cows.  Brent's parents farm an additional 500 acres of corn and soybeans.  70 cows isn't nearly enough to support two families, so I also work full-time for Bethany Swine Health Services, working with pork producers across Northern Illinois to help make their farms better.
My goal is to share what really happens on farms every day to produce safe, wholesome, affordable food for you and your family.

Here are some pics from around the farm!

Calves on milk in the baby barn with calf jackets on to stay warm!

These heifers are nearly a year old.

Our empty milking parlor where we can milk 12 cows at once!  Notice the orange Block I in the floor mats!
