Farm ID: WDRP

Dwight Wenger

After a long, wet winter, spring bursts from the softened ground in the form of thick, bright turf, perfect for a new flock of chickens to scamper about on. Between Dayton and Paul State Forest, adjacent to Dry River, you’ll find Dwight and Frances Wenger’s beautiful farm, West Dry River Poultry.

Family is everything to this farming duo, and it’s a good thing they have help from nearby family members, the Zimmermans, along with their kids Jacob and Janessa, and of course, their pups Ozzy and Cooper. It takes many hands to milk and feed 150 cows, tend to calves and horses, maintain the garden, house, and fields, keep up with repairs, and of course, care for two houses of chickens.

During down time, the family loves to fish at the pond, ride horses, and put their feet up around a campfire.
