Tom Lutsey

Retired/Chief Farming Officer

A lifelong businessman, it took a health scare for Tom to re-discover his passion for agriculture and lean, healthy meats. Tom’s doctors advised a diet low in beef, and he would hear nothing of it. He dismissed his doctor’s orders and began raising healthy, organic beef for his own consumption. With the assistance of his already certified organic neighbor in Door County, the original herd grew from 6 to 40, and at that point the search for our own farm began.

Tom stumbled upon Waseda Farms and has grown his small herd to approximately 100 breeding cows. Tom’s family roots include his dad’s Pulaski farm—perhaps the source of his lifelong love of tractors and all things green. Tom is Waseda Farms’ chief innovator and visionary. But mostly, Tom is happiest plowing fields, moving cattle or giving tours. Stop in and he’s sure to share a story or two.
