Farmer, wife and mother

My husband and I crop farms with his father, uncle and brothers, and they grow corn and soybeans. My father and uncle own the dairy farm that I grew up on in McLeod County where they raise all their own calves and grow corn, soybeans, alfalfa and wheat. I am a stay at home mom to our 5 young boys and I help during spring and fall fieldwork and milk when needed at my family’s dairy farm. ​I am also a substitute in the Fairmont School District for ECFE and Preschool.

Yes, we farm with my father-in-law, two brother-in-laws and my husband's uncle in Fairmont, MN. I am active on the dairy farm with my father, uncle and brother.

Reading, Family Time, Volunteering

​It's too easy for people to "ask Google" about farming and not know how to wade through all the misinformation and get to the real story. I love having the opportunity to tell my story of growing up on a farm, going to college for an agriculture-related degree, and being involved in agriculture on both sides of my family. I want other people in the community to think of me and my family when they have a question about farming and, most importantly, feel comfortable enough to reach out with their questions and concerns knowing they will get a genuine answer.

Growing up in agriculture and, ​now that I've been a farmers' wife for more than ten years, I have a much greater appreciation for my mom and mother-in-law. There are a lot of hats to wear when there are young children involved for any parent, especially on the farm!
