Interview with Paul Miller
Paul Miller grew up on his family’s farm in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The farm was started by Paul’s great-great-grandparents in the 1850s, and was recently recognized as a sesquicentennial farm (150 years old). Paul vividly remembers plowing a field at the age of 8.
Some 60 years later, he’s still farming. Paul Miller Farms is Wisconsin’s second largest carrot producer, with 1,100 acres grown for processing (slicing and dicing), primarily at Birds Eye Foods and Del Monte Foods. All told, the farm raises over 2,500 acres of vegetables, including potatoes, sweet corn, snap beans and peas.
