About the Altenburgs

Our farm is a family farm. We have farmed 40 acres in Grand Rapids Township, Wood County, three miles east of Wisconsin Rapids, since 1964. Over the last fifty plus years, we’ve raised a family, numerous crops of fruits and vegetables, and many memories on our farm. My four children help when they come back home to visit and now bring my grandchildren to enjoy fun times at the farm.

Altenburg’s have been farming in Central Wisconsin since the late 1800’s. I grew up on the Altenburg homestead farm south of Plover, Wisconsin and have been farming since around age 9 when I asked my grandpa if I could help him with the plowing. He happily accepted my offer because plowing with a horse-drawn plow was not easy, especially at his age. We are proud to continue the farming tradition and are honored to have you and your family visit our farm, enjoy fun times and create lasting memories.

Over the years, we’ve had many visitors to our farm. Many of them who first visited as children now bring their children and grandchildren. Of all those visiting our farm, I especially enjoy meeting and watching the children. Each one is special; each one is unique. At our farm, we raise more than strawberries – we raise smiles, spirits, and memories.

When you visit our farm, it is our hope that you will bring along the whole family, young and young at heart. We offer a fun, family farm experience with activities for kids of all ages. I welcome you and thank you for allowing us to be part of fun times that you share together as a family.

Sincerely,
Harold Altenburg
