Doerr grew up on a small farm in Northeast Nebraska where his family raised hogs, cattle, and some hay. After high school he joined the Army. During this time, things got tough on the farm so Justin’s father sold the livestock and rented out the farm ground. When Justin got back from overseas he wanted to move home and farm. “What I found later was I had the desire to farm but did not have the means, as I lacked the capital and resources to begin farming after the folks sold their operation,” commented Doerr.
