COUNTRY LINKed is where faith, family and farming meet. Follow along as we share our farm and our country way of life with you.
COUNTRY LINKed was started three and a half years ago as a place to connect with those who do not live, work and play in the country. Not everyone can live in the country, but anyone can come and visit the Country Link’s, Laurie and her husband Seth, and their three children, Wyatt (Buddy), Kendall (Sis) and Tessa (Sweet T) here on their blog.
The Link’s are a fun loving, hardworking, down to earth family who live in rural north central Missouri. Visiting here you might learn about water pressure, 4-H, get a harvest update, see pictures of cute baby calves or even learn a secret family recipe. If you have memories of spending time on your grandparents farm as a child or have stories from visiting an Aunt and Uncle on their Midwestern farm, then you have come to the right place! Laurie will captivate you with her photography and her wit as you go down memory lane and connect this modern farming family with those days of ole.
Being a farmer’s daughter, a farmHer, a farmer’s wife and now a mama to three little farm hands, Laurie has farm and country life in her blood. She was encouraged to start COUNTRY LINKed after sharing stories and pictures on her personal FaceBook page. Friends and family were wanting more! More pictures, more insight, more funny stories and more truth about the farm and what is it like growing up on one.
Laurie and Seth joined forces almost 15 years ago. A chance meeting in college lead to a long distance relationship, that lead to a long distance engagement, that led to marriage and them being new residents of the great state of Texas. After Texas it was a few years in the sunflower state of Kansas and a promise from Seth that they would one day move back to Missouri. In the summer of 2008 they moved back to Laurie’s family farm in the show-me state and it has been a bit of a whirlwind ever since. They make it work by leaning on one another, laughing every day, putting a lot of faith in God and just appreciating each other for who they are. Add three kids to the mix and the days are never boring!

Hi Laurie! I clicked over to your site from farmnwife’s blog because you commented on a “cheer on another blogger” post that she did in June. I’m that other bloger “E G” – Emily Grace. Thank you so much! Your blog has been so lovely to read this evening. Well done!
Thank you for stopping by! I have not been doing much blogging lately, so I may need some cheering. 🙂 Farmnwife encouraged me to start my blog over a year ago when I asked her about how do you start one. So glad that I did!
You’re Friday photos are an excellent way to keep up your blog consistently. I’m impressed. I know summer time and back to school distracts everyone, but your site is truly well done.
Yes, Judi is a great advocate for more and better farm communication, which is so needed. I’ve been studying on starting a blog for 6 months now, and I can honestly say Judi’s site has been the single most helpful resource.
Hopefully, I’ll have content up right after Labor Day. Regardless, I am thrilled to see your site and enjoy some farm wife camaraderie! Be in touch! eg
Of course! Love the name that you have chosen for yours. Will be looking for it after labor day!
I have met some wonderful people while doing this. Some I consider dear/close friends even though we have never met in person.
