Hello and welcome to my little world!
So who am I?
Well I am a city gal who was raised by small business owners. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in science and was on my way to a career in a research facility. Then in 2007, I met a cattleman and we fell in love. He was farm raised and loved cattle. At that point in time he was on a farming hiatus so he spent his time in the city with me. I was adamant that I would stay in the city and stay on my hard earned career path. Then we had the opportunity to rent an acreage 15 minutes away from my job. I agreed not knowing this was the beginning of the end of city life. I discovered this cattle thing could be interesting and fulfilling. We went to cattle shows and sales and I was introduced to a wonderful community of people. A few years later we purchased a farm 45 minutes away from my job. At the end of 2014 I said goodbye to the city job and started 2015 full time on the Isla Bank Angus Farm.
I love my new life and care about our animals. I hope that I can entertain you with the shenanigans that occur here but I also hope I can shed some light on what goes on and dispel some myths about ranch life.
