Meet Lyna Knight and Susan Weicherding of Lithia, Florida. A former corporate executive, Knight is now the owner and operator of Lyna Berry Farms. Longing for a different pace of life, Knight bought ten acres, did some research on commodities and decided to grow blueberries. She'd never farmed a day in her life before that decision.
That was over ten years ago. Today, their operation has expanded and they're raising cattle and chickens (you'll have to tune-in to see their self-made "chicken truck"). "It's the hardest, best work I've ever done," says Knight.
Lyna Knight and Susan Weicherding both spent careers in corporate America. Lyna in title work, and Susan as a CPA working for a large firm. They both lived and worked in Tampa, but it was wearing on them so they hatched a plan. Their plan was a farm.
