To say farming runs in the family lifeblood for Danny Bond would almost be an understatement.
“My family has farmed all their life,” Bond said. “…We had a farm that was in our family for 200 years, and I still farm that farm. A man bought it when my father passed away, but I still farm it for him.”
Sparta resident Bond, 63, grew up on that same farm, owned at the time by his father James Carroll Bond and his uncle, Ralph Bond.
His interest in the farm began when the young Danny Bond was already learning the art of agriculture.
