Amanda Kutchey from Macomb County runs a fruit and vegetable farm with her family, and she’s also a crop insurance agent for GreenStone Farm Credit Services. Aside from work, she likes to travel … and visit farms on her trips! Where do you find broccoli in the wild? Ask her husband.

She talks about:

  • Wanting to be an engineer before finding out about the existence of agribusiness
  • Eating fruits and vegetables right out of their fields, just like the three generations before her
  • How customers become like family
  • How she can’t stand tomatoes, even though people drive miles to buy them from their farm
  • How crop insurance helps when Mother Nature decides to wipe everything out
  • Being married to someone who isn’t from a farm – and broccoli origins
  • Touring farms while on vacation, like a pineapple farm in Hawaii
  • Snowmobiling, horses, and other fun activities around the country
