Terry and Aggie Boy | Heath and Michele Boy 

Syracuse, KS 

Gordon and Lois Boy began farming in Hamilton County in the mid-1940s.  Lois graduated from K-State in 1943. Of their four children, it was Terry that saw farming in his future. After marrying Aggie they returned to Hamilton County where he focused his efforts on farming. Aggie was his essential teammate and partner. She drove the grain truck at harvest and was a substitute teacher as well. After having their two children, Nichole and Heath, she was the ultimate farm homemaker. She enjoyed cooking and sewing her children’s clothes and her own and became heavily involved in 4-H. 

Heath had farming in his blood. He knew since he was eight years old that farming was the life for him. He saved his first sale money from his 4-H swine project to purchase stock. After graduating SHS, Heath completed his degree at K-State in agricultural economics with a minor in animal science. When he returned to the farm, he picked up right where he left off.  Little did he know his wife to be would be leaving New York City to choose a different way of life. Michele had worked in television news and was tired of city life. All her vacation money was spent leaving. She decided to head out and see the country. On her journey, she met a soon-to-be lifelong friend in Arizona who happened to be from Syracuse, Kansas. As she traveled around she stopped through Syracuse. She took some jobs and got involved in the community, but then was heading out of town when she met Heath. It was a Relay for Life event that brought them together. He introduced himself and they were inseparable since. They married in 2005 and their daughter Mia was born in 2011.

Today Terry and Aggie continue to farm but at a slower pace. Terry continues to serve on the First National Bank Board of Directors. Terry served over 30 years on the local Co-op board. Heath has taken over much of the management and day-to-day labor of their fieldwork and cattle operation. He serves on the Hamilton County Fair Board and the Kansas Farm Management Association. Michele works in town as the owner and editor of the Syracuse Journal, a weekly newspaper, serves on the City Council and Economic Development board. She also helps Mia get from 4-H project meetings to piano lessons to her sheep project and to basketball games.
