Kathy Kuderer grew up on a rural Wisconsin farm. The second oldest of 11 children, she was just 6 years old when the Amish began settling in the Cashton Area in 1966. After marrying husband Chuck in 1978 they made their home on a small farm 2 miles east of Cashton, in the heart of Wisconsin’s largest Old Order Amish Community.
