Willow Brook Farms

Millerton, NY

Ken and Jane Beneke own Willow Brook Farms in Millerton, New York where they milk about 110 cows and manage 140 young stock and bulls. The farm was purchased in 1943 by Ken's grandfather Joachim who was an immigrant from Germany. Joachim grew up on a farm in Germany and wanted to return to his roots. In 1943 he decided to sell his delicatessen in Brooklyn and moved the family to their new homestead in the Hudson Valley. Ken‘s dad Henry was raised on the farm, as were Ken and his sister Heidi, and now Ken and Jane are raising their own family there. Dianna and Harrison are in love with the animals, and Ken is quick to point out with pride that Harrison’s first word was “cow.” Diana is just as enthusiastic and showed her first calf at the Duchess County Fair this summer.
