It’s June and that means it’s National Dairy Month! This June, we’ll be running a blog post on a different Indiana dairy farm every day, with pictures, recipes, and great information about your local dairy farmer.
You can also check out our June Dairy Month webpage by going to WinnersDrinkMilk.com/DairyFarms.
To kick off June, I’ll start with a great family farm nestled in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, Wagler Farms!
Wagler Farms was founded in 1950 when Henry and Frances Wagler, moved from their Daviess County home in southern Indiana to help start the Bean Blossom Mennonite Church. The original farmstead took on the image of many local farms in that era, 167 acres, 18 head of cattle, 4 sows and a mess of piglets!
Sixty-two years, 8 children, 21 grandchildren, and 22 great-grandchildren later, Wagler Farms is still focusing on producing nature’s most perfect food, wholesome and nutritious milk.
Wagler Farms is currently operated by Henry and Frances’s sons, Ken and Lloyd, their wives, Lesa and Crystal, grandson Justin, and his wife Sarah.
Today Wagler Farms is focused and dedicated to the care of their 600 milk cows and is also passionate about adding to the picturesque rural landscape of Brown County, being good stewards of their cropland.
