A Family Farm Since 1910

The Witt Farm is a family farm located near Edgerton, Wisconsin.  The farm was founded as Fairview Farm by Herman R. Witt in 1910, and has been passed through the generations ever since.  Historically, our most produced crops have been tobacco, corn, and soybeans.  We also have one of the largest tobacco sheads in the county.  This specialized building has hinged panels on the exterior walls that allow air to enter the building during the drying and curing periods of the harvested tobacco plant.

Witt Farm is also the location of several historic events, most notably the 1951 explosion of one of the Witt Family’s steam engines that claimed the lives of Arthur Witt and Walter Roll.
