Laura and sister, Katie, grew up in the show ring, exhibiting cattle and swine at the local, state, and national levels. She and husband, Kevin, have six children.

Sharon, aka Chaka, (you know there has to be a story there!) came aboard in August of 2014. She came to F-R-M from a hospice care provider and brings that same caring spirit to you, our customers!
Sharon keeps this (almost) eternal smile on her face and has an infectious laugh to match!
