Time seems to stand still at Valley Springs Farm. Or at least you'll find yourself wishing it did. Dorothy and Don's genuine hospitality and kindness permeated every aspect of our stay and made our short trip to Wisconsin far better than we could have expected. Our room, bathroom and the hospitality center upstairs were clean, quiet and comfortable. Every morning breakfast was homemade and many of the ingredients came straight from their gardens/pastures. Dorothy recommended several sights in the area which were all worthwhile and the tour she gave of their farm was an interesting look at what their day to day life is like. Whether you're feeding baby calves, exploring the surrounding countryside or chatting with them over breakfast, you can't quite escape the feeling that you've come home.

My husband, daughter and I spent 4 days at Dorothy and Don's B&B. The Harms's have created a warm and friendly atmosphere on their family farm, which is nestled among the beautiful hills between Reedsburg and Loganville. The location is central to visiting the attractions around Wisconsin Dells, Baraboo (Circus World Musem, Devil's Lake), Reedsburg (Fermentation Fest), and Spring Green (House on the Rock, Tailiesin). Dorothy cooked delicious, hearty breakfasts that featured things from her garden and products from their beef cattle. Dorothy gave us an informative tour of their small, family farm and provided insight into farm life and the agriculture industry. We also met their "lawnmower," named Lion! We were very happy with our decision to stay on a farm and support the local agritourism industry. A memorable experience with very special hosts!

We enjoyed our stay immensely. We were looking for a short getaway to the Dells. This is located just a 15-20 minute scenic drive from the Dells area. It is a working dairy farm. The grounds were very well maintained with beautiful flowers with nice opportunities to walk around, sit on the front porch, watch the sunset from the patio, etc. You can visit the calves. They offer a farm tour, with opportunities to bottle feed the calves. I especially enjoyed watching the hummingbirds in the flower garden, making friends with the farm cats (I'm a cat person), and seeing the calves. Our accommodations exceeded our expectations. Our room was clean and spacious. We enjoyed the "extra" touches, like: the soft, fluffy robes for our use; the little "convenience" area by the rooms that had coffee available, a small fridge with complimentary beverages; use of the little fridge to store our cheese purchases; a microwave to pop our popcorn. Our daily breakfast was hearty and delicious. Our favorites? The yummy freshly baked items with our breakfasts. Yum! We will be back!

We had a wonderful experience this past weekend. The farm is pefectly located for guests to take advantage of activities in Wisconsin Dells, Spring Green and Baraboo/Devil's Lake area. Additionally, we spent 1/2 of a day riding the 400 State trail which is very close to the farm. The farm experience provided "city folks" the opportunity to better understand the work and responsibilities of running a working farm. Don and Dorothy patiently explained their work and we met their newly born calves and saw the cows being milked. I wish we had taken our children here when they were young. Dorothy was very accommodating to our schedule and got up very early to prepare a fresh and healthy pre-marathon breakfast for our daughter on race day. Our second morning feast was delicious,plentiful and a true farm to table experience. The room, bed and bathroom were pefect- clean and comfortable. I higly recommend this location and hope to go back.

Our stay was wonderful with the only regret being that we coudn't spend more time there. Don and Dorothy are a great team and really make you feel at home. The location is great for folks wanting to take day trips to the Dells, Madison, etc...or you can sit on D&D's front porch and enjoy the rollings hills surrounding the farm. Most highly recommended.

Dorothy & Don User ProfileDorothy & Don is a superhost.

Donald is the fourth generation of the Harms family to be dairying on this Century farm. The original 75 acre farm, located on Highway S in the Ironton township, was deeded to John Ludwig Harms in 1888 and has passed from father to son over the past 120 years. Donald purchased the present 260 acres from his parents, Gilbert & Florence, in 1978. In 1982, Donald married Dorothy Lins, and together they have operated Valley Springs Farm the past 30 years. Contour strips cropped in rotation of corn and alfalfa along with managing the natural nutrients of manure maintains fertile soils to produce the needed feedstuffs for their cattle. Attention to detail and a love for dairy cattle have helped them earn recognition as Sauk County’s highest production Holstein herd for several times in their dairy career. The herd consists of 60 Holstein cows and 60 heifers with nearly 1/2 of the herd Red & White Holstein or Red & White factored.
Dorothy’s love of gardening and cooking was the initial start of living the dream of operating a bed & breakfast. As you enjoy the flower gardens decorating their farmstead or visit the vegetable garden & orchards to see what is in season, they are all a labor of love for Dorothy. She is certified as a Master Food Preserver so canning & freezing the garden produce is her specialty. Dorothy’s Homemade Delights (homemade jams & jellies) are available for purchase during your stay.
Community involvement has played an integral part of their lives. They feel it is important to portray a positive image of agriculture to the general public. Don & Dorothy Harms have opened up their farm for tours, 4-H cattle judging and hosting the Farm/Art D-tour during Fermentation Fest. Don & Dorothy have both served on local ag co-operative boards, government, and served as 4-H leaders to local youth. In 2012, they were recognized as Reedsburg Butterfest King & Queen for their community leadership efforts.
