About Me

My name is Brenda and I’m a farmer, volunteer EMT, traveler, and regular adventure enthusiast!  I started this blog to talk about farming, a tradition that has run in the blood of my family for generations; but then I found that life on a farm is more than just tractors and fuel, it’s a way of life and one that I want to share.


On this journey I was lucky enough to marry to the man of my dreams and we’re making our own home in this small little town that we love.  It’s small farming community with a lot of heart, and we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world!

370_540308205969_1934_n2We are raising the next generation on the farm also, with three kids in the mix.  First, a boy named Hoot, and then a year and a half later little brother Auggie.  Then just when we thought we had it all figured out, a little lady we named Mildred was born.

They started their lives playing in the dirt that my family has worked for three generations.  And as they continue to grow into their own small people, I know that there is a piece of them already that has made a mark here.  Farming is a tradition that runs deep in the soil, and deep in our blood from the very start.


So please stop in to hear about life on the farm.  You will also see stories about farm dogs, family, love, hard times and good times.  And probably a good dose of politics as related to agriculture and the business of farming here in Oregon.  We are fighting a battle here on this west coast state, and I’m standing up as much as I can to protect our legacy.

I enjoy telling stories and hope you will get a good laugh out of them as well!

The easiest way to keep up with what I’m up to is to type in your email address on the home page under “follow me”. You will then receive an update every time a new blog is posted.  So if you like what you see please come back again!

Thank you for stopping by!!

  3. Hi. Love the part about harvesting Hazelnuts. I clicked in the Oct 2012 link hoping to see more Hazelnuts, but I love the Airplane outfit instead. I could just see it. THANKS for the details, it made me feel like I was there with you.

    Hope to see more. Maybe we can connect on Linked In.


  4. Hi Brenda. Nice Oreg article. I enjoyed it. My wife and i just purchased 4+ acres off Hwy 18 just west of McMinnville. Has 4000 ft2 of commercial quality greenhouse space (4 greenhouses plus heated, plumbed propagation room). We’d like to rent/lease, put this space to productive use. If you know of potential interest in this would you contact me? Also have 2other acres wasting away in grass. Would like to rent pasture, or crop to some entrepreneurs interested in using the space.


  5. I just read the Oregonian article. I think they did a good job and it is great to see a positive article about Oregon Ag. You are the kind of person we need leading us into the future.


Let me know what you think...
