Visit a Fifth Generation Family Farm

My husband’s grandfather, George Beattie settled his farm near Sumner, Nebraska, in 1906. Today, the farm is in the hands of father and son, my father-in-law, Jeff, and husband, Bart. This generation - fourth and fifth - run the hog farm according to the values and traditions passed down from great-grandfather and grandfather. Just as Bart’s grandfather passed down his legacy to use, we are passing these same values along to their children.

It really is a blessing to be able to care for the land and his animals. That's the essence of why Nebraska farmers continue to lead the world in agriculture.
