Chosen Acres, Glen Haag Family
Chosen Acres is a third-generation family farm. It was started by Hilbert and Virginia Rupprecht in the late 1940s. The Rupprechts were joined by their son and daughter-in-law, David and Kathy, in the late 1960s. The farm was a dairy until 1977 when the cows were sold. Since then it’s been a cash crop and cattle business. Glen and Tammy joined the operation in 1993 and have continued to expand. The Haags currently raise corn, soybeans, hay and dairy beef.
Glen and Tammy run the farm but David and Kathy, Tammy’s parents, continue to be extremely involved. All of the Haag children, Morgan, Leanna, Carter, Connor, Ethan, Cassie, and Andrew have helped out over the years. Carter and Connor are still involved with both the crops and cattle.
The Haags are active members of their community. Glen has been on the Utica Township Board, chair of the Whitewater Watershed Farmer-Led Council and is currently chairman of the congregation at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lewiston.
