Our sons are the seventh generation to grow up on Kevin’s mom’s family farm in southwest Iowa. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to farm both his mom’s and his dad’s family farms, which are only about five miles away. Watching our sons grow up on the farm and seeing them so thrilled to go check cows or go ride in the tractor makes us excited about the future. We hope to be able to pass the farming way of life down to our children if they so wish someday. In the meantime, we will do everything we possibly can to make the best farming decisions for our farm so they will have that opportunity someday.
Happy National Ag Day! If you see a farmer, please thank them for doing what they do on a daily basis, and providing safe, nutritious food for us all to eat!
