You guessed it - I'm your girl.

I want to be your go-to source for all things fun + flirty - and all things farming. Basically your new bestie, that also happens to be a farmer.

I like to call myself rural-ish – I grew up in a small farming community just north of Madison, Wisconsin, went to college at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and landed right back in my hometown after graduating college in May of 2020.

So what does rural-ish mean?

It means I can fit in while walking down city streets or country roads; spending nights down town or around the campfire; in the latest fashion trends or wearing my jeans covered in mud.

Most people don't how farming works.
That's okay - that's why you have me.

So how exactly am I involved in agriculture? After graduating from UW-Madison with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and Life Sciences Communication I moved back to my hometown and in with my boyfriend – who happens to be a farmer. He’s the sixth generation on his family farm, where they do custom farming.
