Travis Matthews unfortunately began farming under tragic circumstances. Travis and his brother, Hoss, took over the family farm operation when they were just high schoolers, after their father was killed in an accident. Since then, Travis married his childhood sweetheart, Melinda.

Today, Travis and Melinda raise their four children – Grant, Avery, Hudson and Emelia – on their farm in western Missouri. The family raises mostly corn and soybeans on about 8000 acres. They love what they do and appreciate raising a family on the farm.
