Why I Farm

BECK'S WHY I FARM ROADTRIP - LOUISIANA FARMER, Jim Harper

All his life, Jim Harper of Louisiana has wanted to be a farmer. “My father was a farmer. From the time I was small, following him around and working on the farm growing up, I wanted to be a farmer.” Jim recalls.

“When I was a child, we raised seed corn. We used to detassel the seed corn by hand. That was a great memory for me. I would do that every summer. It was hard work, but I liked it. I just, I love being outdoors. I love being in the country. Sometimes it's hard to describe, but it's just a love of being on the farm, being on the land.”
