Farm History: 

My grandfather was a farmer and I used to help him. Then my grandfather passed and my mother took over so my brother and I did all the farming.  In 1969, I began farming on my own.  I married in 1974 and my wife knew and loved farming, so we spent our life farming.  We have 4 boys, two who are still in farming, Alexander and David Andrew.  Farming runs in our blood.  We grow our fruits and nuts with love.
