We're raising kids who raise livestock

Raising Kids who Raise Livestock
Our kids watching the sheep and goat livestock auction

It has become a rite of passage in our family that when you turn five you get to raise your first animal on our farm. You get to pick it out, you get to feed it, you get to clean up after it in the barn, you take care of it, you bond with it and eventually, like today for our kids, you get to sell it.

What's New at Hy-Vee

I love doing taste tests with family and friends, so when Hy-Vee asked me if I wanted to try some of their latest and greatest products to hit their store shelves I said yes! I love trying new things and the box I received had a lot of great family-friendly products that I loved.
