About our farm:

Brothers Tony and Jacob Brey are the fourth-generation farmers and owners of Brey Cycle Farm LLC, a dairy farm in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The farm has been in the Brey family since 1904. Along with their wives and a team of dedicated employees, they have grown the farm from 100 milking cows and 500 acres to 650 cows and 1,200 acres. In addition to raising their own youngstock, they custom raise heifers for other farms. They are passionate about Registered Holsteins and place an emphasis on improving the genetics in their herd using embryo transfer and genomics. They have sent multiple bulls to AI studs, including Jordy, Jacoby and Journey.

The Breys also raise Holstein/Angus animals from birth to finish. Their latest venture, Brey Family Beef, focuses on bringing quality meat and their farm story directly to customers through an on-farm store and an enhanced presence in the community. 

Over the past five years, the farm has increased their emphasis on conservation. The farm is a founding member of Peninsula Pride Farms, a farmer-led conservation group in their community, as well as a demonstration farm through the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farm Network. 

They’re involved in the farm-to-school program in their local community and a host farm for the Center for Dairy Excellence Adopt-a-Cow program. The Breys enjoy hosting farm tours for fellow farmers and community members.
