Jim started farming in the 1970s together with his brother Cork Rufenacht, and now the farm also includes the three sons, Cory, Brian and Jason.

I talked with Jim and Linda among others about a recent visit to Guatemala we did together to see GHG supported CWS projects, their motivation to start Growing Projects, their volunteer work at the US-Mexican border, why they help others and want to end hunger in this world.
