Never in a million years did I think I would be a Dairy Farmer, a Blogger, a Professional Speaker or a Mom and yet, here I am doing all of the above and more. Life is funny like that!
I started this blog in 2011 on a whim. I wanted to share what I learned as I made the transition from being a city kid to dairy farmer. In the years since I have earned a following for which I am extremely grateful. My blog has made a path for me to write for industry publications, as well as Huffington Post and The Guardian. My blog has also created many opportunities to meet and encourage farmers all over North America and Europe to reach out and connect with their customers and share their story.
I was named the 2014 Social Media Farmer of the Year. But to my knowledge that was the only year the award was given, so I might have broke it.
All that is fine and dandy but most of all I want people to know that I love agriculture, in particular dairy cows, more than normal. We milk 100 cows and raise 300 acres of crops in Southern Wisconsin. We farm everyday with an eye on the future so that someday our son can also join us. Not to put all of our hopes and dreams on him but, so far Cow and Tractor are his favorite words so we think it looks promising. I am honest, frank and say things I probably shouldn’t. I love beer and cheese and good music. I respect differing viewpoints but if you’re a jerk I will delete your comments, because this is my blog and I can do that.
