People of Poultry: Susan Schafers

People often dream about the farm lifestyle, the benefits of growing your own food, living on the land, teaching your kids the value of hard work and being in close touch with nature. Schafers raised three children on her farm and was able to be with her children, enjoying the flexibility in living and working in one place. “Living rurally, the land, the animals, raising food – it all ties in with the family ethic and values,” she said. “It’s a wonderful place to raise children.”
