I like working outdoors for myself and carrying on the family farm legacy.

Over 100 years. Our grandpa came over from Switzerland and started farming in 1912. Our dad and uncle expanded the farm over the years. My brother and I are the third generation, we’ve been farming over 25 years.

Most of our fields are dry land farmed. The large Lima beans grow well in the cool climate. They have a deep root and don’t require much moisture. The planting and harvesting is all mechanized and requires very little hand labor.
