Blessing Farms Brown Swiss

Welcome!!

     Blessing Farms, Brown Swiss, got its start in 1936, when Fred Blessing bought a Brown Swiss heifer, for his son Bob. That heifer became his 1st 4-H heifer. Bob showed for many years, with children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren following in his footsteps. He later started driving his own milk truck, adding more trucks to the fleet, a business still maintained today. Steve and Stan credit their Dad for showing them how to get things done and for keeping them on the right track. Watching their Dad work long hours helped establish a strong will to work.

     Since 1936, there have been various new buildings, remodeling projects, and land purchases to make Blessing Farms, what it is today.
     Milan and Helen’s two sons manage the farm, that has grown to three separate farms. Steve is in charge of the herd of 140 Brown Swiss cows and 160 heifers and bulls. Stan focuses on 700 acres of soybeans, corn, and hay.
