Since 1998, Daran and Christina Borth have owned and operated a beef cattle, dairy and grain farm in rural Menahga.

“All that was here was a house, an old garage, a loafing shed and hay shed,” said Daran Borth.


Today, the farm is not only home to the Borths and their two sons, Derek, 17, and Dustin, 14, but also to about 60 head of dairy cows and 10-20 beef steers at any given time.
