Local Farm Mom is #Thankful4Ag’s Hardworking Women

One of my favorite things about the #Thankful4Ag campaign each year is challenging the preconceived notions that my non-Ag friends and family often have about American agriculture and farmers. Contrary to popular belief, there are growers that exist outside of the “hey y’all” and the American Gothic stereotypes.
Meet Kristin, a sheep farmer from central Ohio, mom, blogger and perfect example of what today’s faces of farming looking like. When she’s not raising sheep she’s working on her cooking business and even participating in delegations to China to speak to moms about her work in American farming. Your guess is as good as mine how she is able to make her days 36 hours long.
Check out her video about why she is #Thankful4Ag and who in Ag she is thankful for on her blog Local Farm Mom.
