We often schedule tours of our farm and cattle but occasionally we get requests to show someone around, with only a moment’s notice. Today we had such a request and of course, we obliged. A California native and national speaker was in the area and wanted to see a farm, first-hand. So, he hoped in the farm truck and my husband let him see just how a Kansas farm work and a Kansas farm family lives.
I may often act as the “mouthpiece” of our farm but my husband does a FANTASTIC job telling the story of his cows, his crops and his passion for agriculture. Watching him talk about harvest, calving and the logic behind feeding distillers puts a smile on my face. He’s a man with a plan and a heart for the farm life.
We didn’t get all that much time with our guest today, but I know he walked away with a few new farm facts and a better idea of what makes the heartland so great.
