Raising quality farm products has been a long standing tradition on her MD family farm where she raised a variety of fruits and vegetables for exhibit at county and state fair events as fresh produce and canned goods. For many years she focused on raising both registered Hampshire and commercial sheep marketed to specific niche markets from coast to coast. The sheep have moved on to other green pastures, but she continues to grow and market high quality hay and Border Collies.
