This week we have Loyal Cutforth.

“I am retired. We rent our farm land to good friends and neighbors. We have fruit trees. I love to garden. I grow tomatoes, green beans, melons and sweet corn. We preserve and freeze the fruit and vegetables. We share tomatoes and melons with friends who don't have a garden. We put a small vegetable stand in our front yard. There are no prices. We encourage a donation, and people are very generous.
We have been Farm Bureau members for over 40 Years and served on the Delaware Co. board for over 30 years. Being members has allowed us to meet a lot of people throughout Delaware county, and many have become friends. We appreciate Farm Bureau for its strong support of agriculture and of traditional family values.”
