CHERRYVALE — Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday got an upclose view of how a diversified farming operation in Labette County is surviving the business and agricultural challenges of the 21st century.
Brownback made a visit to Labette and Neosho counties as part of the annual Governor’s Farm and Ranch Tour sponsored by Kansas Farm Bureau.
Brownback toured the rural Cherryvale farm of Don and Linda Sale — a multi-faceted farm operation that now includes the fourth generation of the Sale family. Don and Linda Sale, both active members of the Labette County Farm Bureau, described the origins of their farming operation, the challenges they have faced over the decades, and the opportunities they have afforded their children and grandchildren.
