My name is Kati Baker. I am Tom Furner’s granddaughter. I would like to thank Pa for all the hard work and dedication that he considers a way of life. Tom and his wife Jane of 49 years started their farm in 1968. They had six kids (Sheila, Wayne, Jim, John, Sue, and Deb). They now have 17 grandchildren (Chrissy, Charlie, Joe, Andrea, Sara, Wayne Jr, Martin, Brook, Blake, Tom, Dale, Josh, Shawn, Kati, Dylan, Garret and Jessica). They also have 2 great grandchildren, Lana and Gracie. Tom and Jane just found out that they have another great grandchild on the way!

Tom’s farm is located near Hamilton on 600 acres. He milks about 110 cows with the help from his grandsons Josh and Garret. Pa is an extremely hard worker and I am so proud to be his granddaughter.

Not only is he up at the crack of dawn every morning and working on the farm till sundown, He also takes care of my little girl Lana. I am so happy she gets to see the real meaning of life. Thank you Pa for doing what you do best!
