Our First Home

We love sharing pieces of our history as we celebrate our 125th anniversary. Pictured is our first home office, located at 519 Hickory Street in West Bend, it still stands today! 

Even though our first home office was occupied by November of 1908, there weren’t any full-time associates yet. Our first full-time associate was a local music teacher and orchestra leader and hired as a bookkeeper in 1918.

Picture Perfect Walking Trails

Associates are encouraged to spend their breaks walking the trails through our prairie. This photo was taken by one of our associates during an afternoon walk. Now that's picture perfect!

Friendly Pheasants

We had some very curious visitors stop by and check out associate life at West Bend this week. 

Earlier this year, we released 15 bred hens and 5 roosters to our prairie. This is a continuation of last fall’s release in an effort to establish a resident population. To help with pheasant establishment, we’ll install a food plot this summer which will consist of sunflower, sorghum, milo, and millet, and provide a food and shelter source for the pheasants as well as other wildlife on our property.
