About Paula

Waverly, Nebraska

I am blessed to be part of a three-generation farm. I work with my husband, his uncle, and our daughter on a daily basis. I can’t imagine a better job than getting to feed the world.  We also have a cow/calf operation, which means that I get to raise baby calves for a living.

I love sharing the story of our farm with kids and adults across the state. Some days I am in the office keeping paperwork and records for the farm current. On other days, you will find me fixing fence or driving a tractor. I’m living the life I love.
