Country Fair Blog Party Co-Hosts:

Tip GardenJan, the chick behind Tip Garden, grew up a Kansas farm girl. She now lives in the big city out in the South East. She works 2 jobs outside the home, in addition to her favorite “jobs” of wife and mother! She knows what being a busy woman is, short on time, and always feeling 2 steps behind and she loves time & money-saving ideas!

This Uncharted RhoadeJamie, of This Uncharted Rhoade, is a Midwestern girl. 25 years old. She is married to her best friend and is very passionate about agriculture. She has  a fantastic job working with animals and amazing, smart people. Right now Jamie and her husband are fixing up their one bedroom house into a home. She is happiest when surrounded by open fields and cows. She’s been known to exaggerate a bit and sometimes has potty mouth (sorry mom).

Belong with wildflowersCaitlin is a 20-something living on the East Coast of the United States. After a decade chasing college degrees and career ladders, she began blogging as a creative outlet to reconnect with myself. Blogging pushed her to look at what happiness meant to her (and it was found in the most surprising of places). She is learning about agriculture, beekeeping, chickens, goats, herbalism, and organic farming to begin a farm and homestead in the next year. In the meantime, Caitlin spends her days chasing adventures with Michael (lovingly called ‘my guy’ and ‘my beau’),with an awfully adorable fur-little family in tow.


Danielle was born an Urban Cajun, transformed into a Rural Okie and now blazing through life as a Kentucky Wife. She writes about her life, faith, her fur-child Oliver, over shares about the handsome fella she married and mixes it all in with some agriculture flavor on the (sometimes hysterical, but always honest) High Heels and Shotgun Shells.

Dirt Road CharmTaysha is a Midwestern girl trying to make the most out of every minute and is the voice behind Dirt Road Charm. She has a full-time job in the Ag industry as well as splitting her time with cattle shows, travel, advocating, and family. She shares her experiences and passion with Ag.  Some of her obsessions are cowboy boots, the Michigan State Spartans, the color turquoise,  and bacon…..you can’t forget the bacon!

Tales of a Kansas Farm Mom

Nicole shares about her life on a Kansas farm and ranch over at Tales of a Kansas Farm Mom. Her and her husband raise boys, cattle, wheat, corn, grass and soybeans on their family farm. Her days can be unpredictable, sometimes comical, sometimes heart wrenching, but always fulfilling to those who are lucky to be farmers.
Didn’t I say were and a unique and diverse group!  Enjoy the November Country Fair Blog Party!
Blessings to you,
Laurie – Country Link
