  • I remember him opening his farm up for our FFA to learn more and get on hand experience way back in the late 70’s!!!! I immediately think of a quote … “it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Frederick Douglass 1818-1895
    Mr Fogle did his best to help build strong children with the right foundational values. He has been a blessing to innumerable people. Praying for your family.
