Jennifer

On the highway somewhere in Kansas, after my friend Jodi’s wedding, I was discussing this blog and the type of people I hope to meet through sharing my experiences and life adventures. My friend, Brooke, mentioned something about slowing down and taking more of life in while I’m busy plowing through life. Brooke was so serious about supporting this that she sent pictures and designed and uploaded the header for me.  Brooke – does this public, formal acknowledgement of your high quality skills and abilities count as an official thank you?

I’m a type-A, full-time mom who works tirelessly in my professional life to set an example of hard work for my toddler, Little Farmer. Real life in my house involves a range of struggles from parking the toy tractor in the barn before bedtime to answering questions about why daddy isn’t here and making daily decisions as a single-parent.  Hopefully sharing some of these stories will allow me to open up to and learn from the incredible blogging community.

My voice

I’m sarcastic and to-the-point. It’s a common example of nature vs nurture and in this case it’s a little of both. I hope that you read my posts and assume I’m funny.   Otherwise, just laugh anyway.

Farming is more than my life’s foundation

Farming has been intertwined in my life for longer than my mommy-brain can fathom. I was raised on a working farm, employed working for farmers, married a farmer and have a little boy who lives, breathes and sleeps farming.  {It’s true he talks about farming in his sleep.}

My opinion

It’s a fact that I earn a living working at the Ohio Pork Producers Council, but these posts are written on my own time and this blog is 110 percent my own, personal thoughts. I welcome respectful questions and comments.

Thanks for stopping by!  ~Jennifer Keller

    I really enjoyed reading some of the posts on your blog today! I learned a lot about “the farm” and life over there. Keep ‘em coming- they’re very well done. It’s far aways from the NYC life I grew up knowing. Bet you thought I wouldn’t take a look! Also, the famers and i grow it video was pretty funny!

  4. Hello Jennifer
    I was reading this blog of yours and have to say it seems your doing great. I too lost my wife after 10 years together. Time does help but sometimes the hurt comes back so grab the little farmer and give him a hug. I love farm life and hope to get back to it soon
    So good luck to you and yours.
