The Real Farmwives of America
Apr 08, 2011
Hello Friday! I usually write about a farmer that I think deserves some lime light on Fridays, but instead I thought I would share a group of farm women calling themselves "The Real Farmwives of America
This group hopes to show the world what agriculture is about according to their website
"The Real Farmwives of America and Friends offers a glimpse inside the world of growing up and living on the family farm. These women are farm girls, farmwives, moms, daughters, and aunts that either live on the farm, grew up on the farm or work with farmers everyday. Most importantly they are friends that have the bond of the farm among other things. Follow along with their blogs as they tell you about their hectic yet amazing lives on the farm. From turkey farmers to pig farmers to grain farmers, they can tell you about it all and answer any questions you might have about the food you eat."
So who are these women? Get excited to meet them as I share their bios from the Real Farmwives website.
