Raising Kids and Cattle on a Manitoba Century Farm
Melissa & Trevor are fourth generation farmers from south-western Manitoba. They are raising their kids, Reese & Wyatt, in nature’s playground, all the while passing down their love of animals and family tradition. Trevor’s family has been stewarding these same grasslands for more than one hundred years. The cattle are a part of a healthy ecosystem that they help maintain.
Embracing the Chaos of #FarmLife & #MomLife
Kristy-Layne & Richard raise kids and cows on their Manitoba farm. Operating a dairy is time consuming work. They milk 3 times a day, 365 days a year – no exceptions. Add to that raising 4 kids who are involved in sports, 4-H and other extra-curricular activities, and these young parents are as busy as it gets. Learn more about their story and how they balance the needs of a growing family while managing the wellbeing of their herd, the success of their farm and their desire to produce the highest quality milk possible.
