John Kalmey has been farming all his life, and as it turns out, a life in agriculture runs in his family - well, for at least the past 360 years or so.
Kalmeys have owned farms all over Jefferson and Shelby counties, including part of what is now Louisville International Airport. John Kalmey lives on a dairy farm on Zaring Mill Road, as he has for 61 years and where he raised his family.
He's 86 now, and Kalmey's friends Clarence Miller and Brig. Gen. Ron Van Stockum had been telling him he needed to get moving if he wanted to see his family's heritage.
