FARM BUSINESS
Feels like she has been pulled away from the family farm due to working at the shop. Had to diversify or else would have lost the farm. Says her children may not chose to take over the business or farm, but lets them know its there and won't be taken away because there was no one to take over. Says her grandparents farmed very simply; thinks the farms morphed into a big business versus the small farm and kids nowadays have more opportunities. Glad to have laptops and accounting systems to help with everything. Is afraid if something happens to either her or her husband, something will happen to the farm. Sees the trend in farming to be 'buy local'.
GARDEN
Grows mostly tomatoes and green peppers. Likes fresh cut flowers.
