I never thought I'd own a farm. Even though I grew up on a farm and married a guy who also did, we never once discussed owning one. We always talked about owning our own business ... but never a farm.

Six years into our marriage, living in a different state, with both of us working corporate jobs, he suggested buying my parents' dairy farm. I was surprised - I had no idea he wanted to be a farmer. But sure - why not?

When we moved here, we knew nothing. Now with three entire years of experience, I know one thing - people like to know where their food comes from, and they're interested in how farms work. So ... here we go!

Here's a side of farming probably a lot of people don't think about. Today we had a ton of blowing, icy weather. All the schools are closed tomorrow - already. Here's Kris coming home from feeding the cows. Dark, cold, windy ... no matter what, the cows have to be fed.

As you know, I'm super interested in how your farm works, so I'm thrilled I have another channel besides talking, chatting, emailing, and texting in which I can stay clued in! Truth or Dairy forever!
