Father & Son Carry on Farming Tradition

Don and Beau Van Winkle are second and third generation apple and cherry growers in Wenatchee, Washington. “We buy insurance because, if we have a bad year, it gives us a chance to keep farming.”

“This is my livelihood. I love it!”

George Struthers farms 9,000 acres of wheat in the south central part of Washington. Crop insurance is very important to him as he farms land that has been in his family for generations.
