Heritage Farm announces the first of a three-part series, “Our Dairy Past,” as a way to reunite farmers in northeast Wisconsin with their past memberships in local cooperatives, dairies and cheese plants. The first in the series will cover Lake to Lake Dairy Cooperative and showcase the “Lake to Lake Girl” that was featured on many silos across the countryside, advertising “For Goodness Sake, Buy Lake to Lake Dairy Products.” The event will be held at Heritage Farm in Kewaunee on May 19 from 9 am – 3 pm, with a panel of speakers at 1 pm.
If you have any Lake to Lake memorabilia, such as clothing, signs, or glassware with the Lake to Lake logo, contact Dale Swoboda at 920.323.3323, or Sue Sevcik at 920.471.9289 to display your items at the event.
All former Lake to Lake patrons in the area are invited to attend, along with truckers and employees from any of the plants. Food and refreshments and famous Heritage Farm Baking will be available. All the buildings will be open for viewing, and the Hamachek Pea Combine will be on display, along with Colton, the Pink Heals Fire Truck.
Future topics of the “Our Dairy Past” series will cover Krohn’s Dairy and the small dairy plants that dotted the countryside in Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Door and Brown counties in northeast Wisconsin.
