The largest fundraiser and dairy promotion event is the Annual Dairy Promotion Breakfast, which is typically held the first Saturday in June at a different farm each year. The Dunn County Dairy Promotion Committee was formed to give the public a better understanding of dairy farming. With dairy being one of the most important parts of the Dunn County economic picture, we wish to show you what a modern dairy operation looks and feels like. With your attendance at the dairy breakfast or a farm tour, hopefully, you will leave with a positive feeling about how important farming is to Dunn County.

We are the fourth generation of Olsons to dairy farm in New Haven Township. Steve’s great-grandparents, Carl and Clara, started with 40 acres, then his grandparents, Clyde and Muriel, continued the tradition, and eventually, his parents, Pork and Carol.

Angie was raised on a Guernsey farm in the Weston/Irvington area and is the daughter of Laverne and Donna Weber. We were married in 2001 and were blessed with a daughter, Megan, in 2002 and a son, Nicholas, in 2005.

We bought our current farm in 1998. In 2008, we remodeled the barn and installed a milking parlor. We completed the project in late July and officially took over the farming duties as the next generation at the new farm we named “Maple Hills Dairy.”

Today, our farm consists of 540 acres and an additional 100 rented acres. We crop about 400 acres of alfalfa, corn, oats, and soybeans, all of which are fed back to our livestock via a TMR mixer. Our cows enjoy free-range pasturing all year and are milked twice a day. The milk is shipped to AMPI in Jim Falls by Nelson Ag Transfer of Boyceville.

Maple Hills Dairy has received numerous milk quality awards for having an average somatic cell count under 200,000 annually. We were also honored to receive the “2022 Farm Family of the Year” Award from the Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce for our impactful contributions to Dunn County’s agricultural industry, resource stewardship, and conservation practices.

In addition to farming, Angie is a full-time employee at Bremer Bank, where she has been an employee for 31 years. Megan will be a senior at the University of St. Thomas, where she is majoring in marketing. Nick will be a senior at Boyceville High School.

We are fortunate to have one full-time employee and two part-time employees to help around the farm. We would like to thank our employees, Jeremy Franko, Jonah Cline, Ben Butikofer, and our newest employee, our cow dog Ruby Redd, for all they do!
