Farmers || Future

So, been on and off Farmers for the Future for awhile now.  But, the plan is now in place, the details are getting worked out, and a career in agriculture is in the future! I've extremely excited.  I'll try to update and write a "real" blog here as things go along. Hope people enjoy reading this. 

So, a little about me.  I'm 33 years old and live in Madison, WI.  I am married to a wonderful and supportive wife with whom we have a great little boy.  Now, if you have seen the very few pics I have up, yes, he was a preemie. But he is going strong and make great strides.  I did not grow up on a family farm.  Nope, I was a suburban kid.  I did spend almost all my time outdoors and working as much as possible too.  Now, up until I was probably 12-13 years old, I did spend my summers on my Aunt and Uncles farm in South Dakota.  Having moved around a lot, the farm has always seemed like home to me.  And, its probably where my strong desire to farm comes from. 

So, with that said, I've tried over the years to figure out if I could get started farming for myself.  None of which seemed to work out. That's ok, not all of our dreams in life will come true.  In my next post, I'll lay out the plans that we've found to work, and what my future in agriculture will be. Stay tuned!

Excellent Casey! Hope your little boy becomes quite the farmhand ;)

I am thinking of starting a blog of our journey in farming as well. We started in 2008.

Congrats. Thats very exciting!! I am wanting to do my own as well, just not sure how to go about it and what will work and what will not. I cant wait to hear what you guys did.
