Nathan Ashcraft has a lot of memories on his family’s farm near Sugar City, Idaho. It’s where he grew up. And now, he’s raising his family, and diverse range of crops.
After getting a Ag Systems degree at Utah State, Nathan wasn’t sure he was ready to come home. But, looking back, he’s thankful he did.

For Sue McCrum, potato farming is a family affair. Siblings, cousins, parents and children each use their individual talents to fulfill specific roles on their family’s farm in northern Maine.
She has plenty of experience picking potatoes, but these days Sue serves the farm best by sharing her family’s story as an active member of the community and former American Agri-Women President. She passionately advocates for family farms like hers close to home and in Washington D.C.
