From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs and innovation. Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers and landowners through our #FridaysOnTheFarm stories. Visit local farms, ranches, forests and resource areas where USDA customers and partners do right and feed everyone.
This Friday, meet Molly and John Heaps. Only a short decade ago, the pair worked full-time, non-farming jobs. Now, they run a diverse operation in Loess Hills, Iowa, with 60 cow-calf pairs.
