Ever since leaving the farm to come to Boise, I have been working to get back into farming and work to own my own farm. I'm planning on starting with growing grass hay to cut and sell to other farms, ranches and livestock owners. And then expand from there. Keep it simple and work to get my feet under me.
What is your farming/ranching experience?

Tell us more about your agricultural experiences:
- I grew up farming in southeast Idaho. My family raised beef cattle, pigs, chickens, and other livestock. During the summer we raised our own grass hay and alfalfa to feed over the winter. Every couple of years we would raise barley for Anheuser-Busch as a rotational crop.
I did everything from changing irrigation pipe, operating the equipment, feeding and caring for the livestock and everyday tasks around the farm. During this time I was active in 4-H raising steers.
My parents still run the farm and I go back throughout the year to help.
