Truman Parkway, Martin Zehner of Davidsonville has been working full time since age 13 on the 110-acre farm his father bought in the 1930s.
The ups and downs of farm life have taught him to take the good with the bad.
"You have good times, and it's hard work," Zehner said. "There are bad times too. But the farmer is always looking for good. There is always hope."
But the farm has been the center of his life. And he has worked it mostly by himself, with occasional help.
