My name is Katie Stockstill-Sawyer and my husband, Derek, and I own and operate a farm and livestock operation in Central Kansas. I married into the farming world in December 2010 and have spent every minute learning all that I can about farming and the rural lifestyle. I work off the farm as District Director for U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall, where I serve on behalf of farmers and ranchers across Central and Western Kansas. Derek and I are parents to two boys, Evan, and Owen.
In the hours outside the office, I help on the farm in any way I can – and sometimes that means just staying out of the way. This blog tracks my experiences as I learn what a life on the farm really means.
I wouldn’t change this lifestyle for the world. Farmers and ranchers are some of the hardest working individuals in the world and they do what they do 365 days a year to ensure everyone has access to a safe, healthy and affordable food supply.

If you want to learn more about agriculture or our operation, please don’t hesitate to contact me on this blog or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to show you around.
