Father and son, DeWayne and Selwyn Justice, operate Justice Brothers Ranch and Justice Brothers U-Pick in Maricopa County. Like his father, DeWayne, Selwyn has lived on the farm his entire life. His family has a rich history in agriculture: His dad’s side of the family has been farming the land they are on today since 1928, and his mom’s dad worked his family’s dairy when he was a young man, but got out of farming in favor of ironworking. Selwyn’s mom, Pamela, married her family back into farming, and she worked Justice Brothers Ranch for the better part of two decades. She now works for the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension in Maricopa County as a Natural Resources Educator. Selwyn’s sister, Terra  O’Brian , is also an educator as Special Education Director for Paradise Education Center in Surprise. Terra is married and has two boys.

Selwyn’s great-grandfather purchased the ground in 1928 and developed it with the help of his two sons. With 4 generations calling Justice Brothers Ranch home, and Selwyn and DeWayne working the land together, Justice’s operation truly is a family farm. Selwyn’s daughter aspires to farm, but she’s still pretty young, so right now she’s in charge of finding interesting sticks and stones in the orchards and exercising her favorite horse.

Last Friday, Arizona Farm Bureau interviewed Selwyn during its regular #TalkToAFarmerFriday on Instagram's "Live" feature. As always, for 20 minutes a robust conversation about family farming and ranching, Arizona agriculture and more were discussed.
