BRC man finds joy in work

Ellen Cook
Leader Editor

Editor’s note:  Everyone has a story to tell.  The Leader wants to tell those stories through this monthly feature titled “Bios of Bear River.”  Each month we will feature a Valley resident chosen randomly from the phone book.  We hope you enjoy reading about your friends and neighbors – and be ready, yours might be the next number we call.

Steve Huggins doesn’t have any fascinating hobbies and doesn’t have much time to develop any.  He isn’t interested in woodworking or painting birdhouses.  Oh, he may put together a puzzle or two during the winter, “when it’s slow,” or he may venture out on a trip or two with his wife, Janice, but for the most part, this Bear River City native just spends his time working.

That work means 14 hours or more a day of hard labor.  Not easy for a man nearing his 70s, but he certainly isn’t complaining.  After all, he is doing the job he loves.

Steve Huggins is a farmer.
On his own, he runs about 160 acres west of town, raising alfalfa and grain. Between planting, irrigating and harvesting, the months between April and October get pretty busy.  “It’s a hard way of life but a rewarding one,” Huggins said.

He took over the family farm after his father passed away, although tilling the soil and raising crops were always a part of his life growing up.  Huggins said his father purchased the ground around 1948, and made a pretty good living working it.
