You’ll Love The Sweet Story Of This Family Farm In Iowa
Nissen Family Farm has been in operation for three generations. The 240-acre plot sits just 5 miles outside the very small town of Exira, IA. My father, Mark Nissen, currently operates the farm full-time. He has been working that land with my grandpa since he was nine or ten years old. My grandpa also worked the same land with his father before that.
The farm holds a special place in all of our hearts and is something we will hopefully keep in our family for many more generations.
It’s easy to drive along the county roads and enjoy the rolling hills without stopping to realize that every lovely little farmhouse has a beautiful history behind it. Did you love Amy’s sweet story? Do you have fond memories of growing up on a family farm? Tell your stories in the comments!
