|My Grandpa, Dad and Great-Grandpa|

By growing up in farming families both My Farmer and I have gained the work ethic and pride of being farmers from generations past. Because of this, we both feel a purpose to engage in farming and to continue our family's farming legacy. (And may I add, the reason we fell in love - ahhh!)
My Farmer and I feel so proud of farming today and feel fortunate to be doing so. When our families started farming in the United States through just recently, farming was a means of family support. Today, farming has become a business. Even though this may be, My Farmer and I strive for farming to be more than a business for us, for it to be a way of life, just as it was for our elders.
