The American Dairy Association of Indiana continued their June Dairy Month celebration this week.
They shared the stories of seven more dairy families along with a good helping of family recipes!
The Rauscher brothers are committed to making their farm the best it can be by breeding the best cows they can. They use genetic data to pair bulls with cows on their fourth generation farm.
Just a short drive from Indianapolis, the Kelsays milk 500 Holstein cows and raise 2200 acres of crops. They offer tours of their farm and are very active on social media! You can find them on Twitter (@KelsayFarms), Facebook (Kelsay Farm Tours and Two Maids a Milking), or Amy and Liz’s blog!
Henk and Linda, the owners of this farm, moved to the United States from the Netherlands in 1996 to start this farm. They now work alongside their 22 employees to manage over 4,000 cows and heifers.
The Weaver family has long been a part of their local community. They have farmed since 1944 in Switzerland and Ohio counties and find commitment to the community very important. They find time to serve on the school board, fair board, and numerous other boards when they aren’t busy with their 130 cows.

Passion for producing healthy, nutritious milk lies at the heart of this farm family. The Stockwells value the health of their 450 cows and work hard to ensure that the cows are safe and comfortable. Three generations of Stockwells have worked on the farm, and they look forward to continuing production well into the future! You can find them on Facebook!
The Schwoeppes have a beautiful farm, and they would love to share it with you! Darren and Sam are the fourth generation to work on the farm. They milk 93 cows and raise 150 acres of hay alongside their parents and children. You can find them on Instagram and Twitter @SchwoeppeDairy!
