John Sather and his family still farm the same prairie land their great-grandfather first broke by hand with a horse and plow. At that time, organic was the only way to farm.
Together with his son-in-law (Little Man), and his son (Big Man), Marvin Boike farms 600 acres just like in the old days, often pulling weeds by hand.
Jonathan and Carolyn Olson work side by side on their family farm. During the harvest they often work all night, taking shifts at the wheel of the combine.
