Welcome to Minnesota Farm Living! My name is Wanda Patsche and I live in southern Minnesota and frankly, where I have spent my entire life. I am a city girl turned farm wife. Also in my repertoire are wife, mom and grandmother to three grown daughters, two son-in-laws and six grandkids.
My husband and I own and operate an independent modern midwest farm raising corn, soybeans and pigs. We have farmed for nearly 40 years and oh, the changes we have seen over the years.
Let me just start and say, I am passionate about ag. I never grew up on a farm, but I have developed a true appreciation for agriculture over the years. My calling is to help bridge the disconnect between consumers and farmers. I love sharing my “story” through my blog, my social media platforms, speaking engagements and person-to-person conversations.
Reading my blog is like looking through the window to my life. I open the curtains and share my perspective and truth about agriculture right from my tractor seat. You will see pictures of my family, my farm and beautiful rural Minnesota farm living. Occasionally I will write about other topics that move my soul.
Simply, my blog is me!
