Meet Zack Snider, a young farmer who raises pigs, turkeys, corn and soybeans with his family in West Michigan. He talks with us about:
- The most surprising thing about him (spoiler: it’s not far from having a seasonal werewolf running around the house)
- The difference between male and female turkeys
- A skill he has had since perhaps before he could walk
- A remodel project he’s working on
- Neat technology he and his dad work with to do the best job they can
- Barns with names…that are relevant for a very important reason!
- Sounds his son makes and other fun things Sawyer is learning
- Setting the record straight about family business in animal agriculture
- Three people he might invite to [Thanksgiving] dinner
- Family holiday traditions
- Things he’s most thankful for in this life
