Amy Laper of Anderson & Girls is the second generation on her family’s Stanton farm. After graduating from MSU and working on an off-farm job, her parents asked her back, and she’s now been there for 25 years. They run a market, a gift shop, a bakery, a petting zoo, and have so many fall visitors, they can’t even begin to count them. On the side, Amy is the township treasurer and a basketball coach. Amy, her husband Alan, and her son Austin love going on fishing trips in the summer.

Listen as Amy talks about:

  • How their business doubled when they added a free petting zoo
  • How the Disney mentality is a goal for them
  • Why her tongue-in-cheek title is Manager of Everything
  • Which animal visitors like the most out of camels, lemurs, reindeer, fox, and goats
  • Her family’s upcoming search for a tarpon
