20130809-070952.jpg Recent statistics show that just 1% of the U.S. population considers farming their primary occupation. Since John & I fall into that 1% group, I believe it is important to share about our work in food production. Since 100% of American’s eat, every Friday I write to those who may wonder: Where does my steak come from? What does a farm look like? Who are the farmers and ranchers? What do they do?

This week…

We took Schyler back home. We met my Dad in Lincoln!

20130809-071200.jpg It was really nice of Dad to meet us half way, but the 5 hour drive to Lincoln is still pretty tiring!

20130809-071256.jpgIt was a pretty quiet week here, except that our wedding photos came in the mail. I am excited to get a few printed.


20130809-071557.jpg I helped John move some cows this week to fresh pasture. He also had to chase down a bull that got out.

This week was Ron’s (my new father-in-law) birthday so we celebrated with steaks!

Other than that, I spent the week catching up from all the playing I did while Schyler was here!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
