Roland is Laura's father. He retired when Laura bought the farm and helps with everything. Since he grew up on a farm near Toddville, he brings experience to the operation. "He teaches me how to do jobs the way Grampa used to," Laura says, "which is good since most of my equipment is about as old as Grampa."
Roland spent 29 years as an educator, first as an elementary teacher, then as the elementary principal at Alburnett.
