WHO’S WHO 2018
It was 39 years ago that Ellie and I took a big step and opened Sunny Farms Country Store. Looking forward, we are in the planning process of adding 3,000 square feet to the store to provide better service. We have always been a family business and are excited to welcome home our daughter Sarah and husband Todd to assist in the day to day operation along with our daughter Susan. Our son Jeff and family continue to manage J.R. Ranch in Othello where Roger’s beef is raised and Sunny Farms’ produce is grown. We are in the process of adding 27 acres of certiﬁed organic to Othello’s current production. Thanks to all of you who have faithfully supported us through the years.
