El-Na Farms was awarded the “The Kewaunee County Farm Family of the Year” during the WRLU 104.1FM “Lunch on the Farm” on Wednesday. The Fenendael brothers-- Barry, Lonnie and Shane--operate the 3100 acre farm along with over 20 full time employees.
The farm includes over 1200 milk cows and 950 in young stock and calves. Two large barns and the milking parlor make up the buildings on-site.
El-Na Farms is named after their father and mother, Eli and Nancy. The farm spans six generations (soon to be seven) dating back to 1858.
The Lunch on the Farm was catered by Econofoods and also sponsored locally by Forest Construction, Algoma Motors, and The Rendezvous of Luxemburg.
