In 1904 Emily Hungenberg’s husband passed away. She picked up everything she owned, which wasn’t much, along with her 3 boys, Fred, Edward, and John, and She left Tuscarora, Nevada and moved to Greeley, Colorado. She bought 7 acres of land in 1907, and the Hungenberg’s began farming in 1908. Edward was young, but worked hard growing sugar beets, among other root crops.

In the late 40’s, Edward and Don narrowed their crops to a few weather dependable and resilient crops, including carrots. Edward built his own packing house and began packing his own produce.
