In the rolling hills of Green County you'll find the Burgy Family Farm nestled in near Monticello. Originally the family came from Switzerland and worked their way to Green County.

Since he was a small boy, Glen Burgy knew he wanted to be a farmer. Today he's the fifth generation working the land, and he shares the family story and what his plans with Pam Jahnke.

Burgy says the original farm had managed to grow to around 475 acres by the turn of the century. Today, Burgy Family Farm has now expanded to 900 crop acres today.

Burgy shares some of the highs and lows they've experienced as a family.
