Growing Through Diversity
What does the typical farm look like now-a-days? That’s a difficult question to answer especially when you consider the constant changes farmers are making to comply with regulations and even to supplement their income. Leon and Wendy Snyder of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, proudly manage three different agricultural operations and a concrete construction business – now that’s diversity! Remaining static in the industry has never been an option for the family as they have a solid history of expanding their operations and are making changes every day to plan for the future. Growth has always been important for their multiple diverse operations and Farm Credit is proud to have helped finance their sow barn expansion in 1997 and the implementation of a new 200 kilowatt solar system for their poultry house in 2010.
