As a little girl, I would sit next to my grandpa on his John Deere tractor while he drove me around his little backyard garden. Now, as a farmer’s wife, I get to sit next to my husband while he discs almond orchards with a John Deere 8330 (which is one of the big ones *thumbs-up emoji*).
Growing up, like most, we would go to the grocery store and not think twice about where our food came from. Since then, things have changed– a lot. I went from city/suburb life in Michigan to farm life in Bakersfield, California because… I MARRIED A FARMER! <3 <3 <3
Marrying a farmer has been the most incredible adventure. Throughout my crazy (but totally fun) journey I’ve developed a deep appreciation and passion for agriculture. I feel I have been blessed with a unique experience most people will never have and I just want to share what I have learned with whoever will listen.
I hope you enjoy my journey From City Life to Farm Wife!
