How many generations?

I am the fifth generation on my father’s side, and fourth on my mother’s side, so you could say that farming is in my blood.

I'm proud to be a farmer because... There is no greater satisfaction than putting a seed into the dirt and then working months to cultivate and help that seed to grow and mature and then harvesting that crop that you have had a hand in. There is also no substitute for good old-fashioned hard work, and that is something that I look forward to passing on to my children. There’s no better place to learn that than on the farm.

My favorite way to eat a potato:

Fresh Cut Idaho Russet Burbank French Fries
