Farming was a true passion for Betty and Cliff throughout the years. Cliff started in the service, then worked at the telephone company before farming became a full time job. Betty worked for the Department of Agriculture and then returned home to the family farm. Unfortunately in the early months of 2016 Cliff and Betty both passed on. We will continue to farm, and carry on the great traditions they left behind. We love you mommom and poppop and hope you are watching us daily.
