Recipes for Romance

When we think of Valentine’s Day, we think of passion. And we especially love when personal and professional passions collide! Read some farming romances.

Young Love

Meet Bradley McVey, who grew up on a farm and went to school for engineering. But while at school Bradley realized what he really wanted to do was farm. Emily grew up on a farm and loves to teach. When she and Bradley were married it gave them an opportunity to move back to the farm. Together the two are incredibly passionate about taking care of the cows they raise and being good stewards of the land.

Sometimes our first love isn’t the one that works out. That’s how it was for these two generations of farmers. Their first loves? Careers in big cities! But a love for farming and each other has the Franklin family happily farming in Kansas. Watch their charming story!
