Sometimes as farmers and ranchers we struggle to have an accurate story written about our way of life. Here is the New York Times getting it right.
Hats off for taking the time to do it right author Matthew Staver!

My favorite part of the article is the quote from a kindergarten teacher that was not raised on a farm or ranch.
She says, “I’m a city girl, but my parents wanted me to be immersed in ranching and farming because we were never around it growing up,” she said. “Ranching, farming, they are the arteries of our society, and I want my daughter to know that, too.”
It is so inspiring to hear that opinion! Thank you.

About Beer Ranch

I'm a farm/ranch wife and mother of 4. I've lived all my life on a farm caring for Angus cows. Currently we raise cattle and a variety of crops including wheat, corn, sunflowers, millet and peas. It is a great life and great way to raise children. We live and learn everyday about the world God has made for us. We try to find better ways of taking care of the land while raising food for people.
