Our Story

Set on two hundred acres in beautiful Rock County Wisconsin, the Dairy farm has been in the Rabenhorst Family for 75 years. Third-generation Dairy farmers Bo and Linda Klietz operate the farm today with their daughters Scarlett and Karleigh. The Dairy farm was home to 70 Holstein Dairy cows, heifers, calves, a bull and a steer. The cows were milked twice per day in their double nine-swing parlor. The herd was sold on December 30th, 2021 with the exception of three Holstein heifers who descend from Linda’s great grandfather B.W. Rabenhorst breeding stock from the 1920's.

 

300 meat and dairy goats came to the farm between April and December 2021. We raise them for targeted grazing, rotational grazing, meat production, and a few other projects in the works. The farm primarily raises corn, soybeans, and alfalfa for feed and marketing. We are currently looking for other specialty crops to grow and diversify the farm.

 

The farm features include a 1950’s modern ranch-style home and a 200,000-square-foot 150-year-old white barn in the process of being thoughtfully renovated to accommodate modern usage. Two large pole sheds, a free-stall barn built for the dairy cows now house the goats, several smaller outbuildings a pond and a creek also adorned the property.
