April Hemmes

April Hemmes is a fourth-generation farmer on the very land her family started farming on back in 1901. As the primary operator, April wears many hats on the farm, including planning decisions, planting, harvest, marketing, banking and so much more. While April grows corn, soybeans and hay at the Hampton area century farm, she has also worked across the globe with farmers as far away as Uganda through a program to teach African women how to improve farming practices and increase yields.
