My family and I live near Wahoo, where we milk dairy cows and farm 500 acres of corn, soybeans and alfalfa. I help manage daily farm operations and records, milk cows, care for the cattle, and act as a general farm hand with anything from putting up hay to running the grain cart. As a third-generation dairy farmer, growing and producing food has always been a part of my life and one of the things I am most proud of. Along with this great responsibility, there also comes a need to help others understand where their food comes from. There is a lot of misinformation being spread about the food we consume. My goal is to help connect consumers with the farmers who help produce the products we all love. Most of these farmers are family farmers, just like us, who work hard to ensure that the food we’re producing is sustainably raised and safe for our families and yours.
