Country Haven Farm

Country Haven is a retreat nestled on a quiet dirt road in the northwoods of Wisconsin. A hobby farm dedicated to offering a getaway for any Wisconsin Veteran along with their family or another veteran. No charge to stay and enjoy the friendly goats, mini donkeys, Scottish Highland cows, and Mangalitsa pigs. We are currently fund raising to build a 2 bedroom guest cottage on the farm. We are hoping to break ground in Spring of 2023.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to continue to serve Wisconsin Veterans by empowering them to get back into the outdoors - hunting and fishing trips and outings, camping, etc. We take vets all over Wisconsin and the USA - and the veterans do not pay a thing. We provide all equipment, meals, lodging, etc.
We are trying to reach a goal of $150,000 to break ground on a permanent guest home for veterans and their families at our hobby farm veteran retreat called Country Haven Farm Retreat for Wisconsin Veterans. Ongoing funding is needed to feed the animals here, run and maintain equipment, and to occasionaly hire help when volunteers cannot be found.
We have made lasting and significant impacts for veterans and are proud to say we are 100% volunteer.

We provide programs and experiences that help the veterans' state of mind and over all well being. They are empowered, inspired and feel and find the comaraderie that they need. This is just a great part and result of what we do everyday.

By taking veterans on these trips and gatherings, it allows us to provide the experiences, new friends and new ideas to struggling men and women.

We have and continue to serve hundreds of vets each year. The support we are getting is growing, but we sure could use more. We have the largest veteran fishing event in Wisconsin, we have made friends and contacts all over the country that help us with hunting and fishing trips. We have veterans that have become dedicated volunteers and even do fundraisers on our behalf. The media has been really gracious and supportive. Its been a hard long haul but we are continuing to grow with the support of gracious donors.
