According to Joyce Nicholas, one of J. P. Sessions' six children, "Daddy was determined to have something of his own one day that he could pass on to his children."
...
Joyce says, "They tell me it was great in the old days.
...
Joyce says, "With that came more land, which meant more income, but also more debt, which meant that each one of the six children had to do more hard work."
...
The potato production in the 60s to late 80s and a contract with Frito-Lay gave the farm a boost," says Joyce.
...
Joyce says, "That was in 1974, and Art, along with my sister Judy and her husband Philip, took over the role of decision makers on the farm.
...
Joyce says, "Philip and Judy have a wonderful small-scale family farm, and all of their children work to help plant, cultivate, and harvest their crops.
...
Joyce says, "In the early 80s, Art began planting peach trees, something our Daddy had tried several years earlier without success because the varieties did not survive due to the number of chill hours required to produce the peaches."
...
Joyce says, "They have been using this system for over 15 years now.
...
Joyce Nicholas is no longer associated with the farm on a daily basis, but she still has a heart for the land.Joyce is a soil conservationist with the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).In that capacity, she saw a connection with her family and a group of NRCS employees.
...
Joyce says, "All in all, I can tie the NOPBNRCSE and our family farm together in that we, the Sessions Family, are like their group.
...
Johnny Trayvick, an NRCS employee and past president of NOPBNRCSE states, "Joyce, you have a real nice family.
...
Mrs. Sessions says, "Joyce, your NRCS friends are nice."
...
And, Joyce says, "I have to agree, NRCS folks are good people-just like family."
As for J. P. Sessions' dream of having something to pass on to his children, Joyce says, "I think our Daddy would be proud of the accomplishments each one of his children and grandchildren has made.
...
Typical of the attitude of the people of the land, Joyce Nicholas says, "The can do attitude prevails.
