David and Debbie Klausmeyer (owners) were both born and raised on farms. The love of farming runs deep. In 2005 we started our first dairy tours catering to guests such as school field trips, birthday parties, and family groups. Our main goal in starting the tours was to have an opportunity to teach people how milk and dairy products ultimately end up in grocery stores and kitchens across America. At first, we thought it would show people the work they took for granted in having dairy products, but soon realized it was more about teaching an understanding in why we do what we do. It was very surprising to hear the vast amount of questions people had about dairy farming, but "Farmer Dave," has been doing this for almost all of his life and could answer just about any questions people had when it came to dairy farming. After these first few tours, we were encouraged heavily by teachers and parents to open our doors to the public. We now not only show you what it is like to be on a dairy farm, we also have the pumpkin patch, pig races and much more fun things for the kids to do.
We love running a family business because it gives us an opportunity to work for ourselves and with other members of our family. We have six kids and all have done chores on a daily basis at some point in their lives. Our sons and wives, Scott and Carrie, Adam and Jessica, do a lot of work on the farm, all while having their own jobs to attend to during the day. Our daughters and husbands, Katie and Chad, Sarah and David, Peggy and Dominic, and Theresa and Tyler are all willing to offer a helping hand as well during the busy times such as wheat harvest and the pumpkin patch season. Our 17 grandkids all love being on the farm, learning how to feed and take care of the smaller animals. Our hope is to continue our family farm and instill the hard work it takes to operate a farm so that it will stay a family business for years to come.
