I was drawn to farming at a young age. The hard work and long hours is a wonderful lifestyle. Having my family around me helping out is great family time. Also working in a partnership with God is a wonderful way to grow my faith and love of God!
I have been involved in farming all my life. Working on my Grandfather’s farm as a child, then as a hired hand on a neighboring farm when I grew beans for the first time. I started farming on my own at 27 and have never looked back!
I like having beans on the farm as I enjoy knowing that we are helping feed the world. We have grown feed for animals for a few years but switching to beans a few years ago has been a wonderful change.
