The Detlefsens are a fifth-generation cranberry farming family. Robert and his wife, Lisl, own and operate a 140-acre cranberry marsh in Wisconsin that was originally purchased in 1871 and has been in the family ever since. Robert’s great-great grandfather, Sherman Newell Whittlesey, was one of the original cranberry pioneers, securing 240 acres of swampland in 1871 at the present site of Whittlesey Cranberry Company. Today, Robert and Lisl enjoy keeping the tradition alive and raising their two young sons on the land surrounding the marsh.
