How many do you milk?

The guy behind the counter didn’t know me, basically he knew that a man had sent down his wife with an electric motor to be repaired and it was for farm use. This was my second time speaking to the shop owner in less than 90 minutes, the motor was finished and my bill was due, while we waited through the awkward silence of the transaction to process he made small talk. He took his cue from the business name on my debit card and asked, ‘How many do you milk?” This is how we define ourselves as a dairy…

Sharing that farm life on social media

Farmers, you have to share your story because if YOU don’t someone else will. Right? I follow countless farmers who share myth busting blog posts, they introduce facts about GMO’s and glyphosate and the nutritional values of real milk over nut juices. These farmers take the extra step, they put in the extra time, they WANT to bridge the gap and to connect with consumers. These agricultural advocates open themselves up, as professionals in their industry, they make the choice to share their farm life on social media because that is the world we live in now, people don’t just…

Tractor maintenance and chocolate milk

We started off dairy month with the Surline PTO Color Run and gave away 300 pints of chocolate milk and FROZEN Go-Gurts. This is my FAVORITE way to interact with my community because it’s all about informing families of the powerhouse that is dairy! Farm life off the farm Not only is chocolate milk super yummy but it is a low cost option AND a natural way to replenish your body after a work out. When this news really started going around a few years ago my husband was skeptical – milk when you’re hot and your guts are all…

June and new shirt designs

June is moo month Y’ALL!!! How is it the beginning of June already? The wonky weather has my vibe all messed up and nothing feels like it should be June. Just me? Must be, because my kids are already living on summer time and my husband is running around like a crazy-time deprived farmer, so YAY for JUNE! Farm life Truthfully, we are running out of cow feed and the hay fields are wet. It’s one more stressor to add when last week you thought you were gaining on life. BUT… in the event of being more hopeful I’m sure…

The FIRST weekly pick

I want to get back into blogging about our farm life, after taking a break I’m able to refocus on the parts of blogging I miss. Here is my FIRST EVER weekly pick, and hopefully not my last 😏 Skim through, hopefully there is something here for everyone… Farm life Memorial weekend is the unofficial kick off to summer, right!? I’m feeling it deep in my soul! I may have even started the school countdown, 13 days to go for our kiddos, how about you? There hasn’t been much happening in our field’s and no planting yet, but fingers crossed…

Life changes

There will be several times today I ask myself the same question, am I strong enough for this? The tone will change and the question will sometimes morph into an answered statement, but it’s truthful that in almost every task and challenge I underestimate myself, whether right or wrong I assume I’m not alone. A year into our dairy farm I was debating the idea of going back to college. We decided that it would be a few years of pulling our lives in too many directions and instead we could just focus on our business of farming together. Fast…
