Dairy Wood-Carver
A visit to the Hazaert farmstead in rural Wisconsin provides a glimpse of some relics from days gone by: a silo that doesn’t get used any more; an old dairy barn that’s developed a bit of a lean with age and time. If you look closely, though, you’ll will see something else: the handiwork of a retired farmer that has a story all its own.

Meet woodworker Dick Hazaert, who carves figurines as a pastime. Hazaert spent most of his life as a dairy farmer and, when it was time to retire, he began carving farm implements and animals. It’s a hobby that he enjoys as he helps preserve America’s rural heritage.
