A full-time firefighter/paramedic in Marshfield, Jeff Barth started his business with mowing 10 lawns per week. Since 1997, his business Beaver Creek Nursery & Landscaping has been steadily growing.
“At the end of the day, you can physically see what you’ve done. It’s a different kind of satisfaction compared to my job at the fire department,” he said. “Without my employees, I would be nothing. I try to be the hardest worker to be a good role model.”
