A {BEE}usy Month!

Hello beautiful people, it has been a hot minute! Let me say, I have DEFINITELY missed posting on my blog, but when college calls my name I must answer! It has been a busy month and a half, but I am ready to try and get back on track with my mission and continue my industry visits to share my experiences and knowledge. With that... I had the opportunity to help with the Texas FFA SDEs this past July, where I experienced many individuals repetitively talk about one common thin

Jake E's Riding Round Up

About a month or two ago, I was trying to figure out how I can learn more about the agriculture industry and where I can even GO to learn about the industry. I was asking this question to my grandmother who then introduced me to a program called Jake E's Riding Round Up! She was telling me how she knew a woman who had this program that helped those, especially with mental and physical disabilities, improve their life through riding and interacting with horses. This sounded ri

Landon's Winery

Last week, I was allowed the opportunity to tour this WONDERFUL winery in Greenville, TX, known as Landon Winery! With locations all across the North Texas area, the Greenville location is their biggest facility where most of there storage and bottling takes place! During this tour, I wanted to learn more about the process of growing grapevines and how the development of wine happened, since a majority of wine they sell is grown in Texas soils. *If you didn't know, the highes

Steps to Getting a Green Thumb

Since quarantine started, I have become WAYYYYY too obsessed with plants.

However, most individuals that come in have no

White-Tailed Deer & Exotic Ranch: A Continuing Family Tradition

My love for agriculture all began within my grandfather's career at the Wynne Ranch, also known as his white-tailed deer and exotic ranch. I thought that cattle ranching was cool, but DEER? You never hear that often! This business holds a special place in my heart; however, despite my bias love for fawns and hunting, the market itself is quite fascinating. You may see a lot of success for these breeders as they have wonderful genetics or breath-taking pastures, but let me tel

National Egg Day

Aren't you EGG-cited for today? I know I know, I can really get carried away with the puns sometimes LOL. But today is truly an awesome day because we get to recognize the wonderful producers, big and small, that do a lot for us to have a delicious and easy access food product. On the website Kitchn, an article, written by Joseph Lamour, stated that Americans are eating up to 95 million eggs a year...that totals out to be 279 eggs per person annually...CAN YOU IMAGINE? 95 MIL
