Wilcon Farm

North Ferrisburgh, VT
800 acres
450 milkers and 400 young stock

Ben Dykema runs the Wilcon Farm in North Ferrisburgh, Vermont, and its name is a combination of his parents' names, Wilma and Cornelius. After emigrating from Holland and getting married in New Jersey, Wilma and Cornelius purchased the family farm in 1967. Ben and his wife Kris formed a 50-50 partnership with Ben's parents in 1986. Seven years later, they purchased the entire interest in the farm and became the sole owners. Although no longer an owner, Cornelius still shows up regularly and lends a hand and some hard-earned expertise whenever needed.
