Beth Haselow’s family has been farming for four generations. The family’s farm started as a dairy and evolved into raising, selling, and processing beef cows. Producing quality hay has also been a large part of the farm over the years. Jacob and Beth Haselow produce 700 to 1,000 round bales a year that are used to feed their cattle and horses and sold to local farms.
A horse boarding operation was added to the farm in 2001 with the help of Beth’s dad, Kevin Bergman. The farm is currently boarding 30 horses in addition to a small beef herd and haying.
Jacob and Beth run all aspects of their operation and have two daughters: Josie Harris and Charlotte Haselow. Josie has been involved in 4-H for about three years and helps around the farm wherever she is able. She has a special fondness for the horses. One year-old Charlotte is so far along for the ride but really enjoys the animals.
Josie and Charlotte’s grandmothers, Jenny Bergman and Tricia Haselow, often provide much-needed help, whether it’s with the animals or watching their granddaughters.
Beth credits her father, Kevin, for teaching her everything she knows about farming while serving as her inspiration. Kevin passed away in 2019 but his love for farming helped shape Beth and Jacob’s love of the farm.
The Haselow family is involved in 4-H and they love helping fellow farmers in their community, many of whom helped the Haselows over the past year.
