Inspiration comes from story about farm family

July 13, 2011
By MACY FISHER - Mifflin County Dairy Princess , Lewistown Sentinel

Hi, I'm Macy Fisher the Mifflin County Dairy Princess. This week has been a lot of fun. I was at Dairy Princess Seminar for part of the week. I had a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones. We had a special speaker, too. The speaker was Leona Dargis. Leona lives in Canada with her four sisters and they run their family's farm. Some of you may remember Leona if you ever read "The Furrow." "The Furrow" is a magazine about farm life and Leona and her sister's story was published back in March. Leona told us about her story, which was the same one in "The Furrow." You see, Leona's family owns a large farm in Canada. The thing is though that her parents were killed in a plane crash and her story of how her sisters worked through everything and still are managing to run the huge farm was inspirational to all of us. This also showed us all that the time that we get to spend with our families while working on the farm is precious time. We may not always want to go clean stalls, but the fun that you can have with the ones you love while you do it will always be a memory that you treasurer. Families all across the nation are growing closer together by farming.
