About the author
Steve Pierce was born and raised on an Iowa farm with his parents and three older sisters. His parents Boyd and Jean were poor tenant farmers. Growing up Steve never knew they were poor as his life was full of love and happiness. Steve helped daily on his parent’s farm. Enjoying farming, he found a farmstead close to his parents and started farming on his own. Steve married Vicky and they had four children; Danielle, Nicole, Derek and Ashley. Steve and Vicky’s children had a total of five grandchildren; Zooey, Braylon, Bentley, Olivia and Pierce. He continues to farm with wife on their home farm. A farm crisis in the late nineties led Steve to look for off the farm employment. He worked for many years at an agricultural equipment manufacturer until he retired from the factory.
