(Back in the game) The Real Farm Wife Life of Nebraska

It's been over a year since my last post. It's time to get this blog rolling again. I recently retired from my Agribusiness Technology Instructor position and promoted to farm wife/farm hand once again. So 17 years later I've resumed my full-time position on the farm. I'm excited and can't wait to share the trials and celebrations of my farm wife life.

You all know I'm passionate about women in agriculture and sharing the message on how important they are to the farming life. There is no discrimination. You are one or you're not. We may each play a different role but we are all important and share a special bond. If it's you, embrace it. Pick one thing on your farm or ranch and embrace it. Find your niche in that role whether you have always been one or married in to it. There's a place and a purpose for you.

All I can say is it wasn't our signature wine last night but there's wine involved when the 'real farmwives of Nebraska get together" and help each other out during harvest...and Harvest just started so you are all invited to join us, anytime. Jeep rides, tractor rides, combine rides, men to feed, animals to feed, food and drink...keep an open mind and you'll fit in just fine. It's a way of life like no other and there's all kinds of wives, from full-time farm wives to full-time employed in town farmwives, to new to the farm wives. All are filling a role like no other.

A farm wife...and so much more...


  1. How true is that. I grew up on a farm now I work for the local coop in the feed mill where I get to make the feed that feeds some of the animal in the area. Love my job in the ag field, and I would not trade it for anything. Well I guess I could say one thing and that is to be a farm wife someday.

  2. So happy for you and look forward to more visits with the farm wife :-)

  3. Farm wife is not an easy job but very rewarding and one you do with so much pride. Have a great harvest!

  4. YAY! Glad to see you are back in the game! Keep it up my friend!! The more we share, the more people we reach! You NEVER know who is out there watching and learning from you!

    1. Thank you Jennifer. That is my number one hope in having a blog. That others can learn something, even just one thing from what I have to share. I'm just sharing my passion(s). :-) Thank you for the follow, friend request and comment. I really appreciate it.
