Daily life on a farm outside Lexington, Nebraska, is far from luxurious. However, Vincente Acevedo and Magdalena Barrios wouldn’t have it any other way.
“A typical day: I come home from work, prepare dinner, clean the house, and then I go outside to help feed the animals,” Magdalena said. “There is never a day off. I would rather be at the farm than go out to a party.”
Farming is life for this couple. Both grew up on ranches in rural Mexico — Vincente raising animals and Magdalena helping to cultivate beans and corn.
