hello 2020

hello 2020 and goodbye 2019. I am so ready for a new year and a new decade. As I was reminiscing on the last decade and especially the last few years, I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed with a sense of loss and grief. The last three years we have had to say goodbye to loved one that we weren't expecting to say goodbye to. Of course, there were highs mixed in with those lows. This year, Tim and I will celebrate TEN years of marriage, we welcomed two kids over the last five years, we are finally getting settled in to our homestead in the country and professionally are accomplishing some pretty cool things.

When Three Ag Girls Join Forces...

Through this crazy blogging, agvocating, social media world I am always amazed by the young women I meet. We are strong, passionate and hard working women. I love getting to connect with fellow bloggers and get a little insight into other farms. All our farms are different, yet we are all connected via our passion for agriculture and of course the dairy aisle. I am blessed to have met some great ladies and connect with them on a personable level that I wanted to share some of them with you! Today, I introduce you to Chelsy, aka Organic Dairy Mama and Nicole, aka Michigan Farm Girl .

I met Nicole this last December through a blogger exchange and instantly knew this was a girl to follow. She then introduced me to Chelsy. You may ask yourself, what does an organic dairy farmer, Michigan dairy woman and a California almond farmer have in common?  More than you’d think, and I bet it is some of the same things I would have in common with you…

About Chelsy!

I grew up in Wisconsin on a 70 cow c…

Modern Agriculture

What is Modern Agriculture?
Modern agriculture could be a scientist in a lab creating the newest impossible non-meat hamburger. Modern agriculture could mean the development of GMO seeds to decrease pesticide use. Modern agriculture could be turning on your irrigation system from an app on your computer. Modern agriculture could just mean the use of GPS in tractors, or maybe just the use of a tractor on a farm. Modern agriculture could mean something different to you depending on how you look at agriculture.






Modern agriculture is essentially developing practices that help farmers increase efficiency and reduce the amount of resources to meet the world's needs. But depending on your interpretation of the term you could already have created your opinion of modern agriculture. 2% of the population is involved in agriculture but 100% of the population has opinions.
That's the situation we face today, consumers tend to develop their own opinions of modern agriculture without unders…
