Storyboard Text

  • Hi Mary welcome to my family's farm. We grow all different types of vegetables and livestock, then sell the food for profit, this is called farming The type of farming we do is called commercial farming.
  • Beth's farm is so nice, i wish i lived on a farm...
  • We do something called crop rotation that is based off of growing seasons. Crop rotation is when we switch out growing a crop to grow a different crop that will make more money. Growing season is what season a crop grows the best in. My family was one of the first to use this technique in the Western territories when Westward expansion first occurred. The idea then diffused to most of the new settlers.
  • Do all of the crops stay the same year-round or do they change?
  • Yes we do, my family is in the business of dairying and dairying is the business of collecting dairy. We have 10 dairy cows in the barn. I first learned to collect milk when I was 8. On the farm, we have 10 dairy cows, 4 horses, and 6 hens that produce eggs.
  • Do you have any animals on the farm?
  • One of the interesting things about my farm is that we don't do plant domestication and are not a suitcase farm. Plant domestication is the deliberate tending of crops to gain desired attributes. Everything grown on our farm is all natural. To add, many farms today are becoming suitcase farms. However, my family lives and works on our farm. We don't hire any outside help.
  • That's so interesting because where I lived in Florida, most farms weren't lived on and immigrants were the main workers.
  • As a matter of fact, we do! My grandfather and uncle's job is to go fishing once a week and catch as many fish as they can. After, my mother and grandmother get the fish ready for market and sell them the next day. My mom says that its called aquaculture.
  • This lake is beautiful! Do you do any fishing on this lake?
  • Next time we hangout, you should come to my house! My father owns a mine that is next to my house and I can show you around.Most of my family is in the mining business which is the industry of obtaining coal or other minerals, my family mines coal.
  • Sounds like fun, I can't wait to explore around mines!
