Today, Roger and Lila's son, Danny Stewart, and their grandson, Aaron Boerger, have taken over the day to day farm operations.Although Roger retired about as well as Lila did, you will still see him in the tractor quite a bit!! Danny llives on the farm, as does his son, Brandon. Along with running the farm, Danny does the accounting for Spring Fork, and collects antique tractors and muscle cars. Danny's son, Brandon, owns a lawn care business and also helps out on the farm.
Roger and Lila's daughter, Lynne Boerger Whatley, lived on the farm until her passing in 2010. She followed in her mother’s footsteps and graduated from Franklin University in 1989. She left behind three children: Amanda Boerger Willett, Aaron Boerger and Courtney Whatley. Courtney is currently living in Springfield and attending culinary school.
Amanda and her husband, Eddie Willett, also live on the farm. Eddie works at Kanawha Scales & Systems, Inc. He helps out on the farm whenever needed. Amanda stays home with their 2 children, Logan and Adyson.
Aaron Boerger lives in the main farm house with his wife, Shannon, and their four children: Eli, Kara, Ethan and Kendra. Shannon stays home with their children.
Aaron is a graduate of Clark State Community College majoring in Agriculture. Besides helping with the day to day operations on the farm, he is also a township trustee for Pike Township, a representative for Stewart Seeds, a division of Monsanto, and owns and operates ALB Farms.
Roger and Lila couldn't be more proud of the family and legacy they have created.
