I am a young dairy farmer just trying to survive life in the country. I am the third generation on the family farm and feel like my story is worth telling. I work on the farm daily with my parents and brother and sometimes my sister when she visits from Chicago.
I got married in October of 2012 and my wonderful husband Eric and I live on the family farm. Eric is always getting wrapped into helping on the farm and luckily, he manages a dairy farm too so he knows what he is doing.
In addition to the farm I am a freelance writer and I absolutely love that job! I help out on several blogs as a guest blogger and I am a regular freelancer for one major dairy publications.
Right now we have a small family that consists of Eric and I and our two dogs. We have a female Black Lab mix named Casey and a Heinz 57 mutt named Mojo. Our family combined when we got married and the dogs are inseparable now!
