Hi! I’m Amanda Griffey.
I was born a 6th generation farm kid on both sides of my family. I guess you could say farming runs in my blood. I grew up loving all the adventures and blessings that farm life could afford.
However when my dads family farm succumbed to the agriculture financial collapse if the 1980’s, it left my dad looking for off farm work, eventually moving us several hundred miles away from everything that I had known and loved. Without the farm, my only solace was art.
My parents split shortly after our move and my mom moved me and my sister back to her family’s farm. I was back to the farm life I loved, and I vowed I would never leave the farm again.
That was short lived though as my grandparents would retire from their dairy opertaton a few years later while I was in college. I then found work in the equine industry, where I eventually met my husband, a third generation farm boy.
We now work with my husbands family on their diverse farm operation, and enjoy raising our sons in the family tradition of farming. As I have for many years, I enjoy capturing the scenes and blessings that we love in living farm life.
Some of my favorite things:
- A good cup of coffee
- Good horses
- Old pick up trucks
- Ball caps
- Operating farm equipment
- Hanging out with my boys
- Quiet mornings at the barn
- Working with my hands
- Hanging out with friends
- Camping with my hubby and kiddos
- Watching my chickens (seroisuly they are hilarous)
