"Rooted in providing high quality products to the local community, because we believe these products are not only better for the planet as a whole but that people who eat locally grown products are eating healthier, better-tasting goods."
The Hauckes considered themselves stewards of the land and for several decades, ran a sustainable grass-based dairy enterprise while raising their three children. In 2002, after years of travel and exploration, the adult Haucke children returned to Keewaydin to create a viable, certified organic family farm. In addition to a 40-cow dairy, the farm includes a 10-acre market garden, and a maple sugar shack. The family also raises chickens, heritage turkeys and pork.
They raise 15 acres of garden produce for a Community Supported Agriculture program and wholesale markets. The farm is Certified Organic by MOSA.
Located at the end of Haucke Lane in beautiful rural Southwestern Wisconsin, Keewaydin Farms enjoys the serenity found only in the most quiet of places. A place where the scenery nourishes the soul, and bounty of the farm nourishes the body. A place where three generations of the Haucke family strive to strike a balance with Mother Earth in hopes of preserving the land for future generations of organic farmers. In the spirit of true sustainable farming practices, they raised all their own feed for the animals and fertilized the fields with compost from the farm. As people who had come from urban environments they envisioned a farm where they would raise their children, and instill in them the sense of community and family offered from rural living.
