About Jordan

Fullerton, Nebraska

I never lived on a farm when I was growing up, but I was only two generations removed from the farm. I always had an interest in being outside in nature, whether that was playing with friends, running or hiking in the mountains. To this day, I feel most grounded when I am outside in Mother Nature. I have been fortunate enough to see and learn about various farm operations across the country. In all of my travels, I see the dedication, strength, courage and grit that our nation’s farmers have for producing the best quality of products for our tables.

I now live on a farm where my husband and I raise cows, corn, soybeans, and have a large garden.  I also love having open conversations about food when I deliver beef from our farm straight to consumers’ homes. I am thankful I get to be a part of our food chain in multiple ways, and I love to see the impact that Nebraska agriculture has all over the world.
