Meet Kyle McCarty, a technical fourth-generation farmer who works alongside his dad and uncle on 400 acres. Aside from working fulltime and completing wood projects, he talks with us about:

  • A look-back at analyzing business options like when to sell their dairy cows
  • Bringing new life to the farm with their mom-and-baby-cow-pair (cow/calf) business venture
  • An explanation of greenchop, fresh food at its finest
  • Working with a team of five people for the state’s Right to Farm program
  • The challenge of hunting with a non-cheater bow and dock-fishing
  • Rural romance at county fairs
  • Using high school wood shop skills to build wood projects
  • A fascination with entomology and its tie to food health
  • Dirty – and dangerous – jobs on his farm
  • Great festivals and events he enjoys
  • Uncle vs. nephews: Little pranks that didn’t stand a chance
