Meet cute

Andy and Sarah Birch met officially at the local county fair where both were showing animals. Sarah—a classmate of Andy’s younger brother—was finishing up high school at the time, while Andy was wrapping up his college degree. “He picked on my sister and me,” Sarah says with smile. “I was known for being quiet. He said, ‘Oh, you do talk!’” The Birch brothers had grown up working with their family’s 50-head dairy herd whereas Sarah came to love animals through the local 4-H club.
