Being a small farmer is a tough job, why do you do it?: We have a passion for farming that has been passed down 3 generations. There is so much satisfaction in nurturing our crops from the moment we plant them in the ground until the time when they are ready to be harvested, and then starting all over to get ready for the next year.
When was the last time you took a vacation?: I was recently a member of the California Ag Leadership foundation that took us on a 3 week journey in 2014 to Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa to learn about the challenges these places face with relation to community, culture, and agriculture.
