Meet the Farmers

Donald and Dorothy Harms have operated Valley Springs Farm for the past 35 years. Donald is the fourth generation of the Harms family to run this farm as a dairy. Attention to detail and a love for dairy cattle have helped them earn recognition as Sauk County’s highest production Holstein herd several times in their dairy career. It is with the same love and passion that Don & Dorothy care for their growing herd of beef cattle.

Dorothy’s love of gardening and cooking was the initial start of living the dream of operating a bed and breakfast. As you enjoy the flower gardens decorating their farmstead or visit the vegetable garden and orchards to see what is in season, they are all a labor of love for Dorothy. She is certified as a Master Food Preserver so canning and freezing the garden produce is her specialty. Dorothy’s Homemade Delights (homemade jams and jellies) are available for purchase during your stay.

Community involvement has also been an integral part of their lives. Giving back to the community that supports them, Donald and Dorothy have both served on local agricultural co-operative boards, government boards, and as 4-H leaders. In 2012, they were recognized as Reedsburg’s Butterfest King and Queen for their community leadership efforts.

A family Tradition

Valley Springs Farm is proud of our farm and our animals are given the utmost of care and respect. We feel that it is our responsibility to be good stewards of the land. Our cattle are primarily pasture fed with supplemented forage and silage. The beef we produce is humanely raised without animal by-products and is free of antibiotics.
