Hi, I’m Susan! My husband Mike, and I, along with our three children, Bryan, Morgan and Paul, raise registered Columbia sheep along with all the fun 4-H brings us on a small farm south of Surprise, Nebraska. My role as a farm wife may be different than most because besides our life on the farm and being a mom, I am a firefighter/EMT and a farm broadcaster. It’s a great combination that allows me to do what I love on a daily basis!

I am excited to share and have the opportunity to talk to other Mom’s about farm life, raising kids, and one of my favorites – cooking!
