Wheeler Farm

Wilmington, VT
350 acres
60 milking cows

Year-round schedule

Rob and Karen Wheeler share the early-morning milking, which means being at the barn by 4 a.m. They don’t mind it though. “I appreciate the serenity, the peacefulness of the valley,” says Karen. “You’re at one with what’s going on,” her husband agrees. Both grew up on dairy farms and were ready and willing to settle on Rob’s family farm, joining his parents and older brother, John. A summer vegetable stand, snow plowing business and spring sugaring keep them all very busy year-round.
