Meet the Deetz Family

Ohio dairy farmers Mackenzie, Spencer and Dawson Deetz work alongside their father Bill and a team of employees to provide the best care for their cows and land all year long. Hear why the siblings have chosen to carry on the family tradition.


  1. My class is so excited about Maisy and learning more about dairy farms. We have a local dairy farm very close to our school. We are a very rural area of Berkeley County, WV. We live in beautiful Back Creek Valley near Martinsburg, WV. My class is known as Holloman’s Honeys. We are a kindergarten class and we can’t wait to learn more about Maisy and all the hard work your family does. Thank you so much for being part of this for my students.
    They were super impressed with the “huge” number on her tag.

    1. Hi Melanie! We are so happy that your class is excited and already enjoying the Adopt a Cow program! Thanks for sharing with us. – Tristen Spahr, ADA Mideast Communications Specialist

  2. My 2nd grade class is in love with Maisy!!! We can’t wait to learn more about her and watch her grow and change. We are about 90 minutes away from the farm in Akron, Ohio. Most of the students have never been on a real farm or seen live cows. Some students are refugees from other countries and have seen live farm animals up close and personal. Thank you for sharing your farm and animals with us!!!

    1. Hi Linda! Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so happy that your class is excited to watch Maisy grow this year! – Tristen Spahr, ADA Mideast Communications Specialist

  3. We are a homeschooling family from Ohio. Our kids absolutely love Maisey and learning all about her. Thanks for sharing her and your life on the farm with us!!

    1. Thank you Laura! We are so glad that your family is enjoying the program!

  4. I teach in Cleveland, Ohio and the majority of my students have very little knowledge about farms let a lone how to raise a calf. My students are enjoying learning about their adapted calf Star. They are having fun watching her grow. We have a bulletin board in the hallway dedicated to Star so the entire school can learn about her and watch her grow.

  5. I teach in an urban city close to your farm. We are excited to learn more about a dairy farm close to us. We found out our cow is Mocha, and my students are very excited to watch her grow!

  6. Hello!
    I am a PreK teacher at All About Children in New Philadelphia, OH! We are just a short drive from the farm! I have a few families who have farms in my class! We are so excited to be on this journey through Adopt A Cow and are already in love with little Pumpkin Spice!
    Thank You!
