Just two busy Moms and millennial Farm Wives from Kansas and Missouri on an optimistic, real and raw approach to survive farm life, motherhood and so much more right from the heartland of America!

    Ep 31- The one where mom-ing is hard

    Ep 31- The one where mom-ing is hard

    We welcome back Kylie with big virtual arms. She is back from vacation and ready to talk all things hard in the mom-ing department. Seasons and circumstances change in life as Moms and it also brings new hard situations to face. 
    Crops are struggling in Kansas, but thriving well in Missouri! We hope wherever you are your crops are growing well in 2020 and if not that you are controlling what you can and staying as positive and grateful as possible. We also hope that whatever season you are in and struggling with as a momma, you are not alone. We are always here for you and praying each other stronger! 
    This pandemic has proven to make it tough to feel your feelings freely and not fear judgment or shame, but here at the MWFW podcast we are behind whatever decisions you make and choose kindness and acceptance, even if its different than our own opinion!

    We chatted a few favorite podcasts we currently have listened to, so here they are:

    Ep 30- The one where toxicity matters

    Ep 30- The one where toxicity matters

    Welcome back friends! Kylie and her sweet family are on vacation this week, but i still wanted to be able to chat and bring you some light so I had a friend guest co host with me! Mrs Amanda Nigg from South Dakota. Amanda and her family have been through more trials in the past year than any of us would ever like to see. Their home burnt to the ground and all their belongings, memories and valuables inside with it. She is a truly amazing woman and lights up the social media world! 

    We wanted to talk today about toxic people, toxic relationships and how its ok to want to leave them. Living in today's age and so much unknown makes us appreciate our lives, our health and positive uplifting people more than ever. So wanting a break from the toxicity is understandable and e have both been through it. We hope this makes you feel a little less alone and more brave to protect your "circle".

    Ep 29- The one where we document farm life

    How are you preserving memories on your farm, of your family and in your home? Well if you're like Kylie and Whitney you are very guilt of slacking in the photo book, baby book and history preserving department. Our giveaway interview winner Laura Holmgren from Utah is on their 6th generation farm and discussing their amazing family history. We chat ways to start small in your own homes. We challenged ourselves to get better. History is so amazing and should be preserved for generations to come! 
    'We are not makers of history, we are made by history."
    Send us your ideas for keeping track of historic times, photos or ideas in general!

    Hey y'all. We are back and this episode we are chatting some deep topics: deepening our faith, embracing our current season and growing right where we have been planted! We truly hope you enjoy this episode and feel right at home chatting with us. Kylie and I needed this chat with one another more than we thought.

    Ep 27- The one where safety is no joke

    Ep 27- The one where safety is no joke

    Welcome back, this episode we talk something we both feel advocating for is important- SAFETY.

    Not only do we as mothers try to learn scenarios, tips and get advice for farm safety but we like to research on our own as well. Midwest Farm Wives teamed up with PERC (Propane Education and Research Council). They have an amazing website for kids and parents both. Listen to this episode as we chat #safetysunday tips that Whitney hosts each Sunday and some propane safety on the farm or ranch.

    Above are two very good links: One for kids to learn, play and interact. And the other for info and tips for adults!

    Prayers all our fellow friends in Ag are hanging in there and able to get crops in!
    See ya next week.

Positive vibes

I’m so glad I found this podcast, I’ve been listening on Spotify to all the episodes because I’m dating a 3rd generation dairy farmer that does a lot of field work and am going to school for a dairy science program. So hearing that I’m not the only one that’s alone while he’s farming is a blessing but also understanding what challenges come with having a farm. I’ve been trying to keep a positive attitude and this has definitely helped. Thank you for being there.

Very Relatable

I’ve listened to all the episodes the last couple weeks while driving around scouting fields. Kinda sad I’m finally caught up! Thank you for being real and giving us women in Ag someone to relate to! It’s comforting knowing we’re not the only ones who have #loansforlife!

I am only half way caught up listening to these amazing women talk all things farming, motherhood, and real life but I feel like I have known them my whole life. Thank you for this amazing community of women in agriculture that you are helping create.
