My Dad started farming for one tenant in 1961, and we were still renting that same land up until just a couple of years ago when the entire 240 acres was put into the Wetland Reserve Program. But we were into the second and then third generation in that business relationship that had really become like a family relationship. So now, even though we don’t farm for them anymore—and the family now lives out west—we get together when they come through town in the summer. It is like a family reunion for all of us. It works to build that relationship over all these years and across the generations.
