Bloggers share their lives with Women in Ag

Lisa Prater Updated: 11/11/2013 @ 10:28am

Women in Ag, a special project of Agriculture.com and Successful Farming, is pleased to welcome three new bloggers to the site. Through their weekly blog entries, the women will share a glimpse into how agriculture affects their lives and their families. Readers will enjoy their sense of humor, willingness to tell it like it is, and fun-to-read writing styles.

Anne Miller, at left in the photo above, grew up on a fifth-generation farm in Idaho, and now lives in Montana with her husband, a county Extension agent, and their two children. She works for the pork industry from a home office in the log cabin she and her husband built, with the help of some very good friends. Visit Anne's blog.

Jennifer Dewey, upper right, grew up in northern California, where her parents owned a butcher shop and retail store. She decided to get out of the meat business and obtained a degree in interior design, but later launched a social media campaign for the family butcher shop. She met all kinds of people thanks to that endeavor, including a farmer from North Dakota who eventually became her husband. Follow Jennifer's adventures as a newcomer to the prairie and to crop farming. Visit Jennifer's blog.

Brenda Frketich, bottom right, is a third-generation farmer in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Her family farms about 1,000 acres and grows perennial ryegrass seed; crimson clover for seed; wheat for seed; hazelnuts; and vegetables like green beans, peas, and squash. She left the farm to go to college in Los Angeles, but her heart led her home to Oregon. She and husband Matt are expecting their first baby in May. Visit Brenda's blog.
