Growing up on our family farm, I never once thought I’d do anything else but farm. Every
chance I got, I was out riding the tractor with my dad, checking on crops or feeding cows. In 1997, I rented 300 acres to farm, and I’ve added land every year since to make up the 2,300 acres I farm today. What I most like about farming is how challenging it can be. Every day there is something new to overcome or some life lesson to learn. I always enjoy watching the crops as they grow, and it’s very rewarding to see that the hard work and long days have paid off. I am very blessed to have a job that I love so much, and when my wife brings our two kids to ride the tractor with me and I see the smiles on their faces, it reminds me of the days when I was a kid myself riding with my dad.
