Farm Star Living

"We are constantly taken aback by how supportive restaurants and customers are. It blows us away and holds our spirit together."

"Pay attention to where your food comes from. It is important that you support your local farmers. It is vital for your community, because without farmers in your region, life is coved in concrete."

"There are all kinds of reasons for hesitating or being ambiguous. All kinds of reasons, but it's really just taking that risk to make it happen."

"Everyone must find their own satisfying way of life; and appreciate what people in other occupations do to provide the freedom to pursue whatever they wish to do."

"Fear is a motivator - I'd have to find another job in an office doing something I don't want to do, maybe have to move somewhere else, and that makes me want to be successful."

"Everyone has to eat and farming is necessary for survival. Being thoughtful about where your food comes from and how it is handled during the process is just as important as how nutritious or delicious it is. Have a connection with your food - it’s worth it."

"The crop in a field is the same thing as money... and you have to sleep at night knowing that you have a lot of money outside!"

"I love farming, but I always wanted to serve my country. So my brother and I just went into the USMC, but I know we'll farm again."

"I've learned, in farming, that if someone is struggling with anything always lend them a hand."

"More women are in the industry than you'd realize, but it's still a male dominated world. I think I might add a little spunk to the mix!"
