Why I Farm: Behind the Movement - Tour Stop #9 - Nathan Wentworth, Warrensburg, IL - "I instantly noticed the big, white farm house. It’s the kind of farm house some of us dream about owning. But what makes this house even more special, is that it’s the foundation of Wentworth Farms. Not only did Nathan grow up in the house, but so did his father. The house has been passed down for three generations. So, after Nathan finished his masters, he moved home to the family farm."

This year, in honor of all farmers, Beck’s Hybrids has started a movement. A movement that tells the story of the American farmer. The “Why I Farm” movement pays tribute to farmers for their hard work, dedication, and passion to a job that they do selflessly, seven days a week. Join me, every Wednesday, for a blog dedicated to our Why I Farm movement.
