OUR FAMILY STORY

3rd Generation Farmers

The Crave Brothers were raised on a 40-cow dairy farm near Beloit, Wisconsin but later sold their cows. Then in 1978, Charles and George began farming together in Mount Horeb, milking 57 cows on a rented farm. They purchased their Waterloo, Wisconsin dairy farm in 1980 with the goal of building a successful agribusiness. Brothers Tom and Mark later joined the partnership.  In 2015 the next generation became owners including Andy, Jordan and Patrick Crave.  With the help of the Brothers’ father Bob Crave, there are now three generations of Craves on the farm every day!
