Gracee Poorman has overcome a lot in her life, and dealing with the difficult challenges of overcoming obstacles is probably what attracts her to agriculture. She did not grow up in agriculture, but through a series of twists and turns she found herself working in a commercial hog barn. She also found many people skeptical about her ability to put in the work and be successful working in that environment, and that drove her to prove them wrong.....which she did!
Today Gracee is married and living and working on the family farm that has been in her husband's family for two centuries. She is what I would describe as a serial entrepreneur. Gracee is running several businesses including photography, pressure washing, agricultural consulting and public speaking. She keeps herself very busy with different streams of revenue as well as working on her families farm. In this episode, we will get a glimpse into what drives her.
