Family farmer making it with a day job, an understanding wife, and a herd of yaks

Telling your wife you just got a great deal on a small herd of yaks wouldn’t go over well in every family, and Mary Kaspari is not the kind of wife who goes along with everything her husband, Phil Kaspari, has to say.
