Anita Schmitt

Schmitt Farm

Anita Schmitt works with three generations of family on their dairy farm every day. She and her husband took over the farm that was started by his parents in 1941. A new barn was built in 1995, but after a barn fire, Anita and her family built back stronger than ever. They care for their all-Holstein herd by using sand bedding to keep them cool and comfortable all year round. Anita loves that her cows get to hang out on a “beach” all day! She enjoys dairy farming and the ability it gives her to be her own boss.

Sam Schwoeppe

Schwoeppe Dairy

Sam Schwoeppe’s family has been farming since 1874, and she now farms with her sons that make up the fifth generation at Schwoeppe Dairy. The first milking parlor was built in 1920 and the original farm of crops, pigs, beef and dairy cows has specialized into exclusively dairy. This has also allowed them to concentrate on their herd genetics, which they are able to use as an additional income on the farm. With their cows grazing on land just outside their home, environmental care is at the forefront of Sam and her family’s management practices. Sam is active in her community, and working closely with many food pantries to make sure clients have access to the nutritious dairy foods they need.
