Tell us your favorite experience of Adam helping with chores? Last spring when we were chopping rye and we needed corn planted, Adam was able to jump right in the tractor and plant without even being shown. Adam learns a lot by watching.

What qualities does Adam have that benefit the farm? Adam has the ability to fix almost anything and is always helping where he can on the farm.

What are your responsibilities on the farm? I spend the majority of my time on the farm doing service and repair on equipment. I run equipment such as the corn planter in spring, and I run one of the mergers when we chop hay. I am also in charge of servicing the feeding equipment.

When did you begin helping on the farm? I was in the barn helping my dad for as long as I can remember. As I grew older, I started learning to work on and run equipment. From there, I found my niche with equipment and fell in love with machinery.

How do you balance school, extracurricular activities and farm chores? I was in a program at school where I would receive school credit for the hours I put in at the farm. I was an FFA member throughout high school and some of middle school. I was also a cross-country athlete all four years of high school.

How has working on the farm shaped your character? Working on the farm has shaped my character by making me a hard worker both on and off the farm.

What do you love most about farm life? I love running equipment on the farm. I also have a passion for working on the equipment because of how fun it is to know the anatomy of equipment that you run.

What is one thing you have learned from working alongside your parents/employer? The No. 1 thing I have learned is how to work fast and efficient.

What are your future plans? I plan to stay working on the farm because it’s what I like to do.
