Ben & Jenny Bradley

Ben and Jenny Bradley, along with their 4-year-old son Pete, operate a small family farm in Knox County in northeast Missouri. Together with Ben’s family, the operation includes about 900 acres of row crops and a beef cow-calf operation. Jenny also raises sheep with her family, who live near Novelty.

A former ag education teacher, today Ben also is a volunteer firefighter and chairman of the Novelty-Plevna Volunteer Fire Department. Jenny works as the adult ag education instructor for the North Shelby school district where she assists farmers with a variety of records management and transition plans and manages the Young Farmers program.

The Bradleys have worked with FCS Financial on real estate, operating and home loans since 2007.

“A lot of (establishing a farm) is just simply opportunity,” Ben said. “It would be very difficult for someone who didn’t already have their foot in the door to come back to agriculture. Attending the (Washington, D.C., fly-in) was a rare opportunity to move our voice. “We can jump up and down all we want, but this provided us an opportunity to be heard.”
