Guys I love summer. In part because I love to grill. Probably way too much. I hear all of these ads that are like "you need to buy dad's grilling essentials!" and in my brain I tell them they are wrong because mom is the one who needs the grilling essentials in our house (I've… Continue reading Healthy Grilled Chicken with Creamy Goat Cheese Sauce
Today was day one of an exciting new journey for me. Today I did not go in to work at a full time job with a bi-weekly pay check like I have for the last nearly 6 years. Today I woke up and I worked for me. I went out and I took care of… Continue reading Breaking Free.
I am a female farmer and I am strong. I can carry hay bales and turn wrenches. I can hammer, saw and shovel for hours. I can lug a calf across the sale barn. I can carry a 50lb feed bag to the barn and never even flinch. I am a female farmer and I… Continue reading I am a Female Farmer
If you had to guess how many farmers between the age of 18 and 35 lived in Ohio what number would you say? 200? 400? Last weekend over 700 young farmers (and that definitely isn't all of them!) came together and in Columbus for the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation Young Agricultural Professionals "Taking Root" Leadership… Continue reading A Bunch of Young Farmers.
The last 6 days have been a whirlwind on our farm. Unfortunately, we did not get the ending that we had hoped for. This is not going to be a happy post, but it will be an honest one. Last Wednesday as I was getting out of the shower J called me and told me… Continue reading An Unhappy Story and 3 Lessons

They’ve asked us to… Continue reading JTL Farms Takeover!
I won't deny that on occasion I do enjoy getting all dressed up and going out somewhere fancy. Going out with friends is especially fun because you get to have some good company to make you laugh. When you farm, you often end up with a different sort of unplanned nights out with friends that end… Continue reading Double Dates-Farm Style
Summer has finally made its way to the valley and things are looking good! We have had huge amounts of rain lately which has been really hard on some of the crops in the area. Soybeans are drowned, corn has lost lots of nitrogen, wheat has sprouted and hay is in all states of disrepair!… Continue reading Summer is here!
Happy National Agriculture Day! Since I've recently told you about what agriculture means to us and why we are a part of it, I thought I would tell you a story instead. This is a story of my goofy little dog on our farm this weekend. Sweet little Mayberry, as I have referenced before, is… Continue reading National Agriculture Day and A Story About My Dog
We are incredibly blessed that not only did Jonathan's father inherit the family farm, but that Seth is willing to let us use the farm for some of our hairbrained schemes. Not only is he willing to let us use it, but he enthusiastically gets on board with some of our more sane plots. This… Continue reading What are we doing?
