Our heritage comes through as we build our new company

As we launch the new Latham Hi-Tech Seeds company, a little nostalgia recounting our roots might be in order. The attached clip of our Grandma Evelyn Latham, 92, wife of our founder, the late Willard Latham, was captured several weeks ago. Here she talks about the work ethic of Willard as he was building his Latham Seed Co. from scratch back in the late 1940s. In this clip, Evelyn talks about Willard’s frustration having toiled to build an elevator, only to have the state inspectors come by and tell him it was not built high enough. The only recourse: tear it down and start all over. Which he did. It’s a great example of the perseverance needed in building a company.
