The next great farm family in our June Dairy Month blog bonanza is the Kuehnert family of Fort Wayne. What? There’s a dairy farm in Fort Wayne? Absolutely! (Don’t miss Sarah Kuehnert’s Turtle Cheesecake recipe at the end!)
The Kuehnert family dairy farm was establish in the 1890s, so the farm is now operated by the fifth and sixth generation of farmers.
Brothers Alan and Stanley Kuehnert run the farm with the help of their wives, Cindy and Carol, Alan and Cindy’s sons Nathan and Andrew, and Nathan’s wife Sarah. The family milks 200 registered Holstein cows and creates six jobs in the local community. The Kuehnerts are involved in showing their registered Holsteins at the local, state and national levels.
The farm is open in the fall for a “Fall Festival” — a corn maze, farm tours, calf petting, food, hay mountains and other fun family-friendly activities. Make sure to like Kuehnert Dairy Farm on Facebook to get all the updates!
