Adding to the legacy of five generations of Hatesohls to farm the land in Washington County and passing it down to future generations is of primary importance to Gary and Rebecca “Becky” Hatesohl, new members of the Master Farm Family Class of 2018.

They are happy that their children, Adam and Kelsey, both returned to agriculture-related careers in the region where they can continue to also be active on the farm. Adam works in a large and small animal veterinary practice while Kelsey is a Kansas State University Extension horticulture agent.

Adam and his wife, Lindsey, have two children, Noah and Natalie.

You can find an in-depth story on the Hatesohls online. They will be honored at the annual Master Farmer banquet in Manhattan on March 8.
