Born and raised in Northern Wisconsin, I’m a 3rd generation Dairy Farmer (yes, I’m a Cheesehead!). I started milking cows with my father when I was 8 years old and knew that dairy was my calling in life! As a young outdoor enthusiast I spent many hours walking in the woods with either a fishing pole or a gun in my hand. Spending the first 40 plus years of my life in Wisconsin, the dairy industry has always played a major part in my life. I became involved in the grazing and organic farming in the mid-1990s.
I became aware of Wolfe’s Neck Center and their great work about 5 years ago through my connections in the dairy industry. I believe in promoting the grass based dairy lifestyle so much that I became a Master Grazier in the DGA program while managing a farm in Pennsylvania. Being new to Maine, I’m looking forward to exploring all the natural beauty it has to offer.← Back to Blog
