Barrie, Susan Wilcox offer a humble example of fine character

Barrie and Susan Wilcox, from Wilcox Farms located at Harts Lake, are profiled in the story. Barrie had invited me to tour his family farm, and I took him up on his offer this week.

I met Barrie at the entrance to his home. The farm is situated on 1,600 acres along the Nisqually River and overlooks Harts Lake. The view of Mount Rainier from Barrie and Susan’s living room is stunning. The farm still has the original home of his grandfather, the home he grew up in, and now his new home. His brother lives next door. His nephew, House Minority Floor Leader Rep. JT Wilcox, is just over the hill.
