“Life is made of crossroads. You don’t have to have anything to start with except for desire – a real desire. It means you get up every morning and you work as hard as you can all day. Seeing how much my granddaddy and grandmamma loved farming, instilled in me a love for the land and the animals. We believe in being stewards of the land and industry.”
