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!

Ambassadors and first ladies

These were my surrogate children at the dairy conference, Matt and Sarah Mann. They are wonderful kids and I told everyone at the conference they belonged to me.

Jake is in shorts and we're headed to the 60s today! It's going to be a great day on the Knolltop!!!!

The snow is almost all gone and I have to say I'm enjoying the brown mud and slightly green grass. I didn't even wear my long underwear to the barn this morning, now that's warm!

Let me share a few more photos with you from the Great Lakes Dairy conference.


We were serenaded by Junior Michigan Dairy Ambassador, Matt Mann during the social hour on Friday evening. I bet they didn't know they were getting such a multifaceted package when they picked Matt for an ambassador!


And here are two of my favorite people, Richard and Patty Hyde. Of course everyone knows Richard as the MHA President....such a great leader he is! And of course his wonderful, talented and always happy, giggling wife Patty (Robb). She is the older sister of my college roommate, Julie and she may even kill me for putting her picture here on the blog...but I'll take my chances that she'll take it all in stride. Hey Patty, that's the price you pay when you're the First Lady of the Michigan Holstein Association!
