More About Bruce
"In his last book, Gene Logsdon quotes his sister as saying 'If you have loved your childhood, you will make your way back to it as an adult.' That’s my story. My folks moved to town when I was six, so my earliest memories are of days spent playing in corn fields and cow pastures. Thirty-five years and several corporate jobs later I found my way back.
We have been farming now for about thirty years. What was once a sheep farm has evolved into a diverse livestock operation with cattle, sheep, pigs, layers, broilers, and a micro-dairy. Very little of what we produce goes to the commodity market; most is sold directly to our local customers.
Our son has also found his way back, bringing with him friends he met in college. Together they are taking over the direct marketing and some of the farm operations, as well as adding a market garden and some value-added products. We expect the micro-dairy to evolve into a herd share operation in the near future. The goal is for us to turn over an integrated and profitable operation to the next generation so their kids also get a chance to play in corn fields and cow pastures."
