Whispering Breeze Farm was founded in 1901 by Warren and Lydia Brower. With determination to create an inheritance for future generations, he bought four cows that he milked in a tie stall barn. He passed the family farm down to his son Vernon and Sarah Brower who increased the herd to 40 cows. The growing family business changed hands to Vernon’s children, Paul, Sterling and Treva. Paul, while working the dairy farm, also drove a milk truck and was a Pioneer seed salesman for 45 years. In addition to milking the now 60 cows, they raised 2,000 turkeys and 1,500 laying chickens, selling to restaurants and local families.
After a devastating barn fire in 1985, Paul’s son and current owner Donald and his wife Lisa rebuilt the barns and the business in 1986. As a proud fourth generation farmer, Don enrolled the farm in land preservation and modernized the farm. He imparted his knowledge and talents to the fifth generation of Brower men, his sons Adam and Eric.
Adam and his wife Katelin work with Don to continue to improve, modernize, and diversify the family farm business. They are continuing the family legacy of raising the next generation of farmers.
Hopefully their son Luke and daughters Carmella and Marcella will be the sixth generation farmer keeping Whispering Breeze Farm in business!
