Farmer: Shawn Bula
Location: Coloma, WI
Kettle Brand Farmer Since: 2005
All in the Family
The two best things about Shawn Bula’s job are watching his hard work come to life, and being able to work alongside his dad. One of Kettle Brand’s first farmers east of the Rockies, Shawn first started working on his family’s farm when he was 12 years old.
Nearly 30 years later, Bula-Gieringer Farms is still very much a family farm. “I got into farming because of my dad, and I’m thankful that I get to work with him every day,” says Bula. “My dad is one of the most influential figures in my life.”
