Kylie (1)

Row cropping isn’t easy.  Neither is pork production.  Motherhood surely isn’t a walk in the park either.  Now imagine doing all three!

In our interview today, Kylie Epperson will share how she balances all her responsibilities on the farm as well as producing a podcast called, Midwest Farm Wives.  With pork production, there are many misconceptions about farrowing creates that Kylie will address and explain the purpose behind them as well as how they care for their livestock.  In addition, she’ll explain how the farm works with seed and chemical companies while also making sure her kids are learning valuable lessons like hard work and critical thinking.  Kylie also has advice on what farmers can do to share their story to consumers like not comparing yourself and being true to yourself and your story.

Kylie Epperson is a row crop farmer, pork producer, and mother on their family farm.  She is also a fellow podcaster with Midwest Farm Wives podcast which shares advice on farm life and motherhood.  On top of all that, Kylie is also an avid agriculture advocate!
