We’re a group of South Carolina farm women working to dispel myths about modern agriculture and build trust in farming communities and farm families. We want to answer questions and share facts as well as our personal stories of farm life. Please join us in finding our CommonGround.

Our Farm: Cattle, sheep, chickens, grain for feed and hay
My Work: Wife, mom, agriculture teacher and Future Farmers of America advisor
My Hobbies: Working with cattle, kayaking, photography, shoes, cleaning and organizing
Ask Me About: Animal science and food safety
About Me: My husband and I both were raised on farms, and my family still farms full time, so it’s no surprise that we have a love for agriculture. We’re passionate about the farm and the life that the farm provides for us and our kids. We are thankful that we were given the opportunity to be raised in a farm environment and have the opportunity to raise our children in the same environment.

Our Farm: Dairy
My Work: Wife, mom, farmer, environmental outreach coordinator for a government agency and sales representative
My Hobbies: Baking, sewing, crafting, being a livestock show mom and networking
Ask Me About: Caring for our dairy cows
About Me: In our family, we consider our free time to be anytime we are headed to a livestock show. When we go to shows, I love networking with others involved in agriculture and learning how they do things differently than we do on our farm. I also love spreading the positive message of modern agriculture to others who are disconnected from rural America and help them to understand what we do to produce safe, wholesome food for them to consume.

Our Farm: Corn, cotton, soybeans, peanuts, wheat, hay and Black Angus cattle
My Work: Wife, mom and consultant pharmacist
My Hobbies: Camping, Clemson University football games and attending NASCAR races
Ask Me About: GMO crops
About Me: My work as a consultant pharmacist allows me to work with the geriatric population, which I really enjoy. I learn something valuable from them each and every day. Just as the elderly population shares valuable information with me, I in turn share my passion for agriculture through classroom visits and farm tours with children.
