Grower Spotlight: Charles Robinett & Scott Vetterkind

Charles and Scott share with us their journey from the front lines of military life to overcoming the battles they now face as commercial poultry farmers. 

What an honor it was to sit down with two former Marines who spent over 20 years protecting our freedoms. Now they serve our country in a different way but still have the same fight and determination. Charles and Scott share with me their journey from retirement to starting their own poultry farm. The lessons they've learned in the military have shaped how they face and overcome the current challenges of working in the commercial poultry industry. We are grateful for their service and think you'll be encouraged by this spotlight.
