Andy McDonald—partner at Sweet Life Farms—has one simple mission: to grow the best produce possible as a smaller operation. A goal that some of the larger farms just can’t achieve.
A third generation farmer, Andy conveys that farming and agriculture is not a job, it’s a lifestyle.
“It’s rewarding to grow something from start to finish. My plants are my babies and I plants 8 million of them every year.”
The McDonald Family works 7 days a week and only takes one day off—Christmas. But to Andy, it’s worth it.
“That’s why we took the Italian phrase Dolce Vita for our farm, it truly is the Sweet Life for us.”
