“It’s really nice to be able to farm and do what I’m doing because I’m going through the same thing that my growers are going through whether it be water issues or prices. It really helps me to relate to my growers….. Farmers, we’re by nature optimistic people. Otherwise, I don’t think some of us would be doing it if we didn’t think that there was something better down the road.“ – Donny Hicks.
