For the Dennis Palmer family of Thatcher, Ariz., cotton farming is at his family’s core.
“I love to plant cotton,” says Dennis, whose physical size mimics a defensive linebacker in the National Football League. Like a pro football player, Palmer is unafraid to tackle the many challenges in cotton production.
“My favorite time during the cotton season is picking cotton - it’s white and beautiful. It represents the payoff at the end of the year.”
