Rita Dugeon

Dugeon Family Farm
Gambier, OH

Rita and her husband, Chuck, have lived on the family land for almost twenty years. Though Rita did not grow up in a rural place, she says that she is a country girl now and would not want to return to the city. The Dudgeon Family Farm is a commercial farm that sells produced wheat and soybeans. Though Rita helps with the hay bailing in the summer, she says that Chuck does most of the harvesting. Rita had just finished canning for winter and though she did not have many chores with the animals, we paid them a visit. The cattle were enthralled by my camera and followed us, simply staring, every time we moved.
