“I don’t know if it was destiny or runs in my blood, but it’s funny because my education brought me back to farming. I went to college to get a better job. I didn’t want to work in the fields. But now, I like it. I like being out there. I’m a hands-on guy. I don’t like being in a cubicle or four walls. Some people learn in the classroom and some people learn in the fields. I’m a guy who learns in the fields.
“I have my degree in my pocket, but I wanted to do to something that my family was involved in. My dad and mom, they’ve been farmers for a long time. Now instead of them working for somebody else, they work for themselves. That was one of the reasons I decided to go into farming: I wanted to do something everyone was proud of.”
