Treinen Farm Mission Statement

To provide visitors a unique, entertaining way to connect to family, friends, and rural Wisconsin, and to provide a sustainable way of life for our farm family and local community.

Our Family

Alan Treinen is the third generation to farm the Treinen Farm just five miles west of Lodi, Wisconsin.  The eighth of ten children, Alan relies on the help of his close extended family to farm the 200 acres.  The farm produces hay, corn, soybeans, free-range chickens, beef, pork, and of course the popular corn maze and pumpkin patch.
 
Angie Lathrop Treinen is a small animal veterinarian in Lodi, and also takes charge of creative development and business management for the farm. 
Sons Thomas (age 15) and Patrick (age 11) are starting to help with the fall maze and pumpkin patch enterprise.
 
Our extended family is an integral part of our farm, and one of our goals is to keep the farm in the family and as an anchor for family and friends from near and far.  Treinen siblings, in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews all pitch in during the busy fall season. (When we run out of family, we enlist neighbors, friends and acquaintances as well--if you can drive a tractor or make popcorn, call us...)
 
 
The Farm
 
The Treinen Farm welcomes many  visitors each year. New activities are added each year, but we strive to maintain that personal connection and opportunity to experience a real farm and a unique, entertaining outdoor destination.
 
The land around our beautiful pond and limestone bluff has been treasured by many generations of people, with evidence of Native American campsites here from as long ago as 6000 years or more.  Solomon Gottschall homesteaded the farm in 1856.  He first built a log home near the pond.  Then, during the Civil War, he built the first frame house on the property (part of which still sits at the farm entrance.) His son Everett Gottschall built the big red barn, which is still in use.  Alan's grandfather purchased the farm in the early 1920's, and he and his wife built the brick farmhouse that the Treinen family lives in today.
 
The Treinen Farm is third generation real Wisconsin family farm.  Our extended family welcomes you to our beautiful location for a memorable adventure.
