Teen launches “Farm To Fashion” business

DUTTON — Farm-to-fashion is the passion of Kate Stephens, who at 16 years old launched the future of her family business as a fourth-generation farmer.

After running combines with her dad at 15, Kate was inspired by the history of her family’s farm that dates back to 1912 to bridge the gap between farmers and consumers – a mission that has her grandfather Robert Stephens happy to know the next generation is interested in continuing the farming tradition.
