Before he even graduated from high school, Justin Miklaszewski of Raymond started his business, Two Creek Farms.   

 

Now, he’s 22 and this year graduated from UW-Whitewater and opened his first retail store, Two Creek Farms in Union Grove.

 

If not for a full freezer, Miklaszewski might not have started selling meats while still in high school. The first year, he started with just a handful of Black Angus. People responded by the hundreds to his Facebook postings, and he saw a need he could fulfill.

 

Now, Two Creek Farms also offers  pork, chicken and turkey plus cheese. He works with Johnson Sausage Shoppe in Rio for processing and offers everything from sausage and jerky to steaks and custom cuts. Thanks to online shopping and delivery through Market Wagon, sales have increased beyond his imagination and his customer base reaches from Madison to Chicago.

 

In addition to running the farm and food business, Miklaszewski graduated this year from UW-Whitewater with a double major in general business and business management and a minor in international sales.

 

Next, he’s working on opening a second retail location, with a goal of 2023 in either Whitefish Bay or Oak Creek.
