Farm Facts & Family Story: Heim’s Hillcrest Dairy

Each year the Kewaunee County Breakfast on the Farm is hosted by a different Family Farm located in Kewaunee County! Our 2024 Host Family Farm As a multi-generational family farm, Heim’s Hillcrest Dairy prides itself on the ‘Family Feel’, both in the business and the daily operations of the farm.  Family is a cornerstone for all that the Heim’s do. Heim’s Hillcrest Dairy was started in 1963 by Ray and Florence Heim, when they purchased the original farm and started milking just 30 cows.  Knowing that he wanted to continue the family farm, Ray and Florence’s son, Lloyd and his wife, Joyce (purchased or became a partner) in 1976 and grew the milking herd to 50 cows.

Farm Facts & Family Story – 2023 Hosts: Salentine Homestead Dairy

Our 2023 Host Family Farm Salentine Homestead Dairy LLC is excited to host this year’s breakfast after waiting a few years since being canceled in 2020 due to COVID.  It all started in 1920 when Ben & Marie Salentine purchased the farm & its original 80 acres.  In the 1950’s, their son, Nick, purchased the farm with his wife Agnes.  In 1975, Jim, the 3rd generation, and his wife Mary purchased the farm.  During their time, they grew the farm from 45 cows to 80 cows until the year 2000 when they added the existing milking parlor & free-stall barn.  They then doubled their herd.  In 2014, a partnership was formed, Salentine Homestead Dairy LLC which includes the family’s 4th generation, Josh & Jenny.  Since 2016, the Salentine’s have worked hard at improving cow comfort and have added on additional cows to where they are today, milking 300 cows on this family farm.  The young stock are raised off-site by two...
