2014 Kuehnert Dairy Farm Fall Festival
Come join us for our 2nd Annual Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival to experience the daily operations of a working dairy farm. A variety of fall entertainment is available for all ages to enjoy.
The Kuehnert Family is extremely excited to be able to share their farm, family and cows, and to tell you their farm story. They want consumers to see what life is like as a dairy farmer, how they care for their cows and the land. It is their passion to educate the general public, so that they know that milk comes from a cow, how a gallon of milk gets to the grocery store, and to know the importance of milk in a healthy diet.
Kuehnert Dairy Farm is well run by a family management team and a dedicated group of employees. Brothers, Alan and Stan, along with Alan’s wife Cindy, their two sons Nathan (wife Sarah, children Allie and Bryar) and Andrew (wife Brittany) are partners in this 300 cow Registered Holstein herd.
The Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival will run for five weeks, with the opening day on September 27th, and continue through October 26, 2014.
