Female farmers survive a challenging year

“It is not how successful our business can be as the bottom line. The bottom line is how successful our business can be and support our employees’ families and our community,” said Afton Darnell Roberts. “I believe that comes from being a woman and understanding all that goes into a job and your work life.”
