Patty is the middle of 5 - and humorously known as the ‘middle child’.
She was one, growing up, that you could find outside ALL.THE.TIME! Patty worked alongside her father, Jerome “Red”, as much as she could. Driving tractors, helping with the livestock or delivering seed corn. Upon graduating from Kishwaukee College - Patty worked for Hintzsche Feeds, a division of Hintzsche Companies, for 27 years where she managed the feed mill. She does this alongside of helping on the produce farm.
Patty and her husband, Jeff have two grown children, Nick and Jackie. As a family, they farm in the Sandwich-Serena area and have a small cow-calf herd.
