“I’ve farmed all my life.” recalls Martin Hayden. “I was raised on a farm, grew up on a farm, and farmed with teams. We didn’t farm with tractors. Dad raised cattle, he had horses he farmed with and a few milk cows to live off of. I loved it. Even when I was a little bitty kid I was following him through the field.”
