Jim then took up farming full time with his dad and brothers.  He farmed out of Windham with two of his older brothers.  On March 2, 1957, Jim married Maryle Lynn Herman.  Over the course of time, eight children were born. In 1960, Jim, Maryle Lynn and two babies moved to the family farm north of Hingham, where they raised their children.

His faith in Jesus Christ, family, and farming were his life. Jim enjoyed his last years farming with his sons and took great pride in the accomplishments of his wife, children, and family.
