I now consider myself a dairy farmer. At first, I was married to the dairy farmer. After 25 years of marriage, raising two sons on the farm, learning to do all sorts of jobs around the farm and being involved in the everyday operation – I have arrived! Our farm is located just six miles from the Wal-Mart Corporate Office. Although our rural area is being eaten up by urban sprawl, we’re hanging on as only 13 dairies remain in our county.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a bachelor’s of science in nursing and am a registered nurse. Although I am not practicing as a nurse, I use my education every day. One of my main jobs on the farm is raising the baby calves. I love to share information about our farm because I believe consumers need to know how their food is produced.
My volunteer experiences have enriched my life. I have served as a 4-H leader and I currently volunteer for Farm Bureau and for Midwest Dairy’s SpeakOut! program. Native Arkansan, born and raised in Bentonville, city girl gone country – that’s me!
