A Farmer’s Trophy Wife??

Hello!! I’m Cathryn and I am a farmer’s wife…

Which means I have mud (and cow manure!) on my floors, a washer and dryer that run everyday nonstop and hungry men (and kids!) at almost every meal. 

I grew up on a cattle/grain farm and right out of nursing school married my farmer and moved to our cattle and grain farm. That’s 40 + years of experience…and boy, was it a steep learning curve! When I started there were no blogs/Pinterest lists or e-books helping me to navigate the world of being a farm wife; and really, there still isn’t anything out there geared towards this lifestyle. I started this blog EONS ago, have stopped and started, posting randomly over the last few years, and am back again! 

As a dreamer, gardening enthusiast, busy mom of three (13, 11, 9), a nurse and a farmer’s wife (not to mention an aspiring writer!) I am here to share…well…lots. 

Brace yourself…my oldest describes me as “so extra”…whatever that means! LOL 

Feel free to ask as many questions as you can think of and if I don’t know the answer, we will find it out together!

  3. Love your blog. My farmer and I are working on updating our 3rd generation farm. I am an art teacher, and artist, who loves all thing farmhouse fabulous. Repurposing and reclaiming objects and items from farm time pastaid always one of my design goals. I would love to share some of our remodel with you as we continue on our journey… From one farmer’s trophy wife to another,

    1. Fabulous!! I would love to see your stuff!! Email me anytime and good luck on the remodel! It’s fun and time consuming, but sooo worth it! 🙂

  4. I love your pinterest boards!!! I repin all of them like a crazy person!! follow back?

    1. Sure! I’ll go hunt for you on there right now!! 🙂

  5. I stumbled across your blog on FB and O-M-G…it’s to die for! We have a small ranch/farm up north, north Florida that is! We hunt, fish, ride anything with 2 or 4, legs or wheels! Honestly you have made me so lazy by providing me great outfit ideas that I go to the computer before the closet!
    …Now only if you could get the IRS to write acrylic nails off as a tax deduction, because you know that they’re the original multi-purpose farm tool, my life might be perfect! Lots of Love…Steph

  6. I love your blog! I’m not the farmer’s trophy wife yet, just the farmer’s trophy girlfriend, but I’ve got plenty of time 🙂

    Thanks for putting this blog out!

    1. LOL…farmer’s trophy girlfriend totally counts, we were all there once! Nice to “meet” you!! And thanks for reading!!!

  7. Oh my LANTA!!! Hold the phone! What a fun blog, and right where I am at.

    I live on a small farm in Oregon. But I am a somewhat rebellious girl in that I am a farm wife but determined not to look like one. I moved here and God bless them, my neighbors looked old, tired, and leathery. There was a girl MY AGE that looked 20 years older than me.

    I love vintage clothes and cowboy boots, lace, ruffles and a little sparkle and glam. My two college age daughters have turned out just like me…….lol.

    I love my country life, but I DO care about what I look like. I don’t have much money so I thrift, garage sale, and save for a few nicer pieces. I take care of my skin and hair, I exercise, and wear makeup. Sometimes I wonder why being a farm girl, people think that you have to not look nice. It doesn’t take lots of money or time. Im proof that it doesn’t.

    I am a farm girl, I also run a small photography business, and a soap and candle business. I work part time for a church and have a hubby and three kids. I am also a musician.

    My hubby is not a farmer, I am THE farmer. He and I are a classic rock n roll love story. East meets west and settled in the country. He says I’ve ruined city life for him forever.

    Yee haw! lol

  8. Hi, I’m so excited to find your website! Finally someone shares the same style of life, clothes, etc. as I do! I have subscribed to your blog & love it! I will be back to visit everyday! Thank you so much!

  9. Hi Cathryn,
    I hope you are feeling not too bad these days and enjoying summer time. We hear the delicious echoes of children’s voices some of the time and know another generation of farm kids are growing up across the road. Keep on doing this great work on behalf of farm wives.

    1. Thanks Lois, Hope you are having a great summer too!

  10. Hi Cathryn,
    I’ve been following along with your blog for a while and just noticed you’re also an Alberta girl- awesome! It’s more important than most of us realize to communicate with our consumers. And I love the style and fun incorporated into your posts. Keep them coming!


    1. Hello Rosie! Great to “meet” another southern Alberta girlie!! I checked out your blog and love it! Great posts that show our real ag life!

I love to hear what you think!!!
