My name is Emily. I am a born and raised fifth generation Iowa farm girl who has a passion for her family, her new marriage, volunteering through 4-H and her family farm. I am lucky enough to live on the family farm; where my husband and I raise hogs, cattle, corn and soybeans with my brother and sister-in-law and my mom and dad. Our little family is rounded out by our dog Kane and my brother and sister-in-law's dog Ayden.
I work for the Iowa State Fair where I am the Agricultural Education Coordinator. I love it! I am a Fair girl thru and thru; I have never missed an Iowa State Fair in my 36 years! I get to help educate and entertain Fairgoers on every aspect of agriculture from the babies in the Animal Learning Center to the informational Little Hands on the Farm to Blue Ribbon Kids Club. I am one busy girl every August!
I am passionate about my farm family and our small family farm along with my new marriage and volunteering as a 4-H livestock judging team coach. My husband and I are starting our very first garden together this spring so things should get interesting!
My husband and I may have off farm jobs but we get to come home and live our farm dreams every night right along side my farm family.
