Casey Van de Sande is a retired dairy farmer with more than fifty years of experience growing crops for his dairy cattle and vegetables for his family and friends. Once he retired, he shifted his focus to growing vegetables and flowers. Because of his green thumb, he often ended up with more vegetables than the family could use, or that could be given away. So he looked for ways to turn his hobby into a little business. At the same time, his thirteen-year-old grandson, Casey O'Shea, needed a summer job, so it was agreed that the two Caseys would share the workload and the profits and Caseys' Vegetables came into existence.
