Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

President's Day

Happy Presidents Day!

Yesterday felt like spring around here. It was so nice to have a peek at what's to come in just a few weeks!

The kids have the day off today so JW is gone with a load of scrap metal. Yes we can now call him an official "scrapper." After he gets back, he and Luke will head to Mr. Kyser's to work for him for most of the day.

We have a cow calving at the moment...I wonder if it will be another heifer. If so, we can officially say we've had a heifer explosion! I was talking to another farmer last evening and he asked what we did with our bull calves and I said we just haven't had any lately. He then asked if we were using sexed semen and I said nope, we're just really blessed with lots of heifers.

Well, I've got to get back to the barn.....and hand out some jobs for the crew that's left here at home.
