became a perdue family farmer
Although farming is a lot of hard work, Levi and Kristin wouldn’t trade their lives for anyone else’s. They love being in the poultry houses. It’s a joy to care for the chickens and to watch them interact with each other. Between flocks, Levi and Kristin work long hours to prepare the houses for the next one. They’re always excited when a new group arrives at the farm. Levi is a third-generation farmer who has spent his whole life in the industry, and even started his own grain operation in 2002. Kristin has been farming with Levi since 2014 and the two just purchased the farm in 2017.

fondest farming memory
Our two-year-old daughter loves the chickens; she loves to ask how the chickens are and what they are doing when we come back from caring for them. We love raising our kids on the farm around the chickens, knowing she loves them so much and already wants to know what they are doing.
