Wisconsin Planting Season 2016

“And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said ‘I need a caretaker’ so God Made a Farmer”

John Deere’s and Jesus. A few of the many things instilled in me growing up on a farm. My dad is one of those farmers that God carefully made to help feed this world + I just wanted to share a day in the life of him with you all so you can appreciate him with me.

Planting season has once again come + gone for LSD Cattle Co. but this year is a little different. I was able to capture those memories on camera! For most farmers, it’s just the same every year. You plant the crop, fertilize it, water it, spray it, harvest it, sell it. Just a cycle that repeats itself. But these days aren’t something I want to forget. I want to remember these moments spent with my dad watching him do what he absolutely loves to do. I know I say this a lot but I truly mean it, I’m so blessed to have grown up on a farm + have a role in agriculture. Going to school + earning a degree in ag was one of the best decisions I could have made, following in my mom + dads footsteps. Being able to help my dad make decisions on his farm + to start a farm with Kyle is something that I’m thankful for.

So please enjoy these pictures as much as I do + take a good look at just the work it takes to sow those seeds in the ground.

This next set is my boyfriend Kyle getting discing and planting. It’s our first official year farming. Hoping to be as advanced as dad someday, but we all start somewhere. Farm on!

Instagram | Why you should NOT turn on post notifications!

So Instagram is going absolutely NUTS today, am I right?! Everyone is in a hard panic posting an arrow, telling people to turn on post notifications for their handle so they ‘don’t miss anything that’s to come!’. And it’s rather annoying if you ask me, don’t you agree? I’ve actually been tempted to Unfollow some people completely because of this. Well I’m going to tell you why you SHOULDN’T turn on post notifications, yes I said it, do not turn on post notifications for me, or for anyone else for that matter! You must be thinking I’ve lost my marbles or something right?? Because this is exactly the OPPOSITE of what everyone seems to be saying. Well hold onto your boots sister because I’ll explain in .5.
