A normal guy and his cows
As a dairy farmer, I consider it an honor to continue a tradition that has been in my family for more than 100 years. My wife, Ali, and I along with our dedicated family of employees milk 300 cows, and care for more than 600 animals on our dairy farm in Litchfield.
Dairy farming is a demanding job, but it also allows us the flexibility to be involved in our local community. It’s always been important to us to educate those in our community about where their milk, cheese and yogurt come from; we love what we do and we welcome any opportunity to share it with others.
I grew up learning everything I know about farming from my dad, and it’s very fulfilling knowing I’m using that knowledge to make our farm a success.
I’m a husband to my wife, Ali, father to our one-year-old daughter, Amelia, alumni to Michigan State University with my degree in Business Finance, fourth generation owner/operator on our farm that started in 1906. We grow corn, soybeans and alfalfa on about 1200 acres that helps feed the cows.
That sounds like a lot to say!
Actually, I’m just an all around normal guy who loves his cows and raising his family out in the country on a farm.
