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

Blase Family Farm

Last week, I made a stop at the CUTEST family blueberry farm in Rockwall, TX. This farm, Blase Family Farm, is not only a blueberry farm, but a Pumpkin patch too! They provide many ag tourism opportunities that make the farm unique and important to many families within the community! This small farm holds a BIG place in the Blase family's hearts, and I can unquestionably see why! They just finished up their blueberry season, but thankfully I got a peek at what the farm is all

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. It was so bad that when I came home from college I had to move out a WHOLE CAR just filled with plants alone...I might have developed a problem, or at least a good one LOL. Since my love for plants has grown over the past couple months, I have been getting involved within a nursery setting and noticed many people are picking up on the same hobby as myself. 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

Hitting the Jackpot!!!!!-Jackpot checklist (for beginners and continuing learners)

As quarantine is coming to an end, jackpot season is starting to begin! After the struggle of putting on virtual shows and having to take what seems like HOURS to just snap one perfect picture of your crazy sheep, cow, even pig...you finally can start making your way into the show ring! Some of us are still beginners in this show world and others are still learning. I know that I still have to learn a lot myself; however, I have been speaking to some of the best individuals a
