After dad's death, daughters save family farm

LAMBERTON, Minn. – Miranda and Kaycee Altermatt were just 20 and 22 when their grandfather asked them a question that would alter the course of their lives.

Days earlier their father had been killed in a boating accident, leaving a 1,300-acre family farm in crisis.

“Do you want to farm?” Mark Altermatt asked his granddaughters.

“We’re going to help,” they answered.

“That ain't what I'm asking you,” Mark pressed. “I know you'll help us take the crop out, but I want to know if you want to farm.”
