FullSizeRender Hi, I’m Mandi.  I live on a farm, love nature and God’s creation and also have a severe soft spot for animals. I spent my childhood on a farm swearing I would never live in the country and never marry a farmer.  Fast forward so many years later and I laugh at the irony that those two things are what makes my soul sing.  I’m a farmer’s wife, mother to two humans, and an animal mom to a multitude.  I work in the city five days a week, always longing to get back to our homestead as quickly as possible.  I love growing our own food and taking care of the animals and all the hard work, blood, sweat and tears that comes with it.   

I am married to a redneck, bearded veteran who puts up with me and all my animals and crazy ways.  He wears his faith and his overalls proudly, raises beef cattle, corn and beans and spends his summers bailing hay in the blazing sun.

We like to hang out on our front porch with friends and neighbors and cruise our country roads while listening to Christian and Country music.  We are learning how to be more self-sufficient mostly by trial and error and the grace of the good Lord above.

You can find out more about what we are up to on a regular basis by visiting us on our Instagram page.

  1. Mandi! I just found this after connecting on Instagram. Please tell me you are still in Illinois and I could see you? I’d love to meet up and catch up on the many years we’ve missed. I live in Springfield and I would come find you wherever you are!!


  2. Hey Mandi! Don’t know if you remember me, it’s Jenny from KS, Jenny’s Farm Sweet Farm on Instagram. I deleted my Instagram account about a year ago. I was thinking about you and Tom the last few days as we’ve all been hit in the midwest with bitter cold and winter storms. Farm chores have been quite the challenge these past couple of weeks here in Kansas.
    Hope your doing okay and miss chatting farm and gardening stuff with you when I was on Instagram.
    God bless you my friend!


      1. Hey girl! So glad to see your blogging again!!!!
        God has been so good to me this past year as he always is! Farm life is busy as usual. My 16 yr. old daughter & I have grown our little cattle herd to 10 head this year! We have several horses and lots of chickens to care for. It’s a cold 20 degrees here this afternoon. I sat down today and did a garden seed inventory. Dreaming of warmer days and getting my hands dirty!
        Can’t wait to catch up with y’all here on the blog! Looking forward to a new year full of joy! Happy New Year to you both!


      2. Lots of dreaming of warmer days and dirt under my fingernails from seed planting here as well! So good to hear God has been faithful to you! Stay warm sweet friend ❤️
