Posted October 13, 2018 12:11:22 When Amy Lee, a farmer from South Dakota, left her father for a new job in Texas in 2003, the family’s life looked pretty good.
Amy had grown up in the small town of St. Louis, Missouri, and was studying for a bachelor’s degree in organic farming.
Her father worked at a grocery store in Kansas City, Missouri.
They were close.
“I was a very, very close family,” Amy told New York magazine in 2018.
She had been to every state farm fair, and the farmer’s market was her favorite.
“It was so cool to see what the local growers were doing, to see the fruits that were in the field,” she said.
Amy went on to become a certified organic farmer and a certified food security manager at an Iowa organic farm, which was where her husband, James, first started growing his own produce.
James and Amy had married in 2002 and they had two daughters, ages 5 and 4.
They had four boys, ages 4, 7, 9, and 11.
In 2013, Amy’s husband, the farmer James Lee, died.
James Lee had been ill with cancer, and his death was announced in October, two months before his 60th birthday.
“The pain and the shock of it, it’s a tough thing to process,” Amy said.
“We lost a very good person.
And he’s in a very hard place.”
Amy and James had three sons: Jake, 3, Austin, 2, and Ethan, 1.
Their oldest daughter, Emily, was 5 years old when her father passed away.
James had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2015, and Amy was working with him on her own medical research and researching how to fight the disease.
James was an active farmer, and she wanted to continue his work and help his family, Amy said in the interview.
“When I heard he was dying, I thought, ‘I love him more than life itself.'”
James Lee died in 2015.
Amy Lee said she was devastated when her husband’s death was confirmed.
She said she never stopped to think about her father’s work.
She started growing her own produce in 2017, and by 2019, she was ready to start her own business.
“My whole life I’ve had an eye on the business side, and I wanted to start something bigger,” Amy Lee told New Yorker writer Nick Kristof in 2018, “but I didn’t know how to do it.”
Amy Lee has since moved her family to the Texas Panhandle to start a small farm.
She plans to continue growing and growing her produce, and is working with a company to bring her produce to market.
“If you’re going to move to Texas and do what you’re doing, you’re moving to a new place,” Amy explained.
“You’re living a new life, and that’s what we wanted.”
She said her family had not been able to stay in Kansas because of health issues and a recent illness.
“So I’m here,” she told New Yorkers.
“Wherever I’m going, I’m looking forward to being where I want to be.”
“I think I’m finally doing it, I’ve done it, and it’s time for me to go,” Amy added.
“And now I’m on the other side.”
Amy’s family told New Americans that she had not given up on her dream of starting her own food business.
Amy’s father was a farm owner in Missouri, but he passed away in 2015 after suffering from a stroke.
Amy was able to help her father with his cancer treatment and to take on the farm business, which she plans to grow to include other crops and animals.
“That was really tough, but I was really lucky to have him around,” Amy recalled.
“He was really into it.”
The business is now her family’s, and they have grown the business to include three other families.
“This is what I’m really going to do,” Amy declared.
“There’s no reason to go back to Missouri.”
Amy was also an ambassador for the Farm Rescue Mission in North Dakota.
The mission is an organization that rescues farmers from the land to build sustainable farming systems, including organic, grass-fed, and natural farming.
The organization has also worked with local food cooperatives, local food pantries, and farmers to provide education about the importance of family farms.
Amy is a member of the organization’s executive board and has helped lead the organization.
“She’s the face of the farm, and we’ve been able in our community to really help her grow her business,” said Maria DeMarco, the executive director of the Farm Protection Foundation, which helps fund the organization, in an interview with New York City magazine.
The nonprofit also provides support to farmers in Kansas and Nebraska to help them start new businesses.
“Amy has always been very,
