Hi, I’m Nikki! I live on a cattle ranch in beautiful Southeast Indiana with my husband and our two daughters. I also work full-time off the farm as a software developer over in the “Big City”, but my heart is always here. We have a great life. It’s full of challenges and angst, that’s for certain, but there’s something about trying to carve an independent future for ourselves and our girls that breeds a resilience and strength unlike anything I’ve known. It’s been tough getting our operation started, but I can honestly say that our marriage, our love and our family is stronger for it. We are truly a team!
I am a huge advocate of 4-H and programs for women in agriculture. What I hope to provide here is a virtual “front porch” where we can gather to talk about what’s going on in our lives on our farms! I’ve made some great friends through social networking and have learned so much about myself and what we’re trying to accomplish in our life here on MikNik Farms. By sharing what I’ve learned, I hope to help others who are on the same journey!
Until we meet again,
I put the Nik in MikNik Farms!
