About Alli Kelley

I live on 5 rundown (but lovely!) acres that my husband and I are working hard to rehab and bring back to life. We have a wide array of animals that varies depending on the season and year. Our flock of chickens is pretty constant and our two dogs, of course, will always be there. We are all about homegrown and handmade; I make everything I can think to make. We love homemade meals, homegrown food, and believe that life is what you make it – happiness is also handmade. I studied animal science for my bachelors degree and animal nutrition for my master’s degree so I am very passionate about all things animal and know a good bit about feeds and pasture management as well. I love it all! My website, Longbourn Farm, is the best place to get all the right information you need to make the most of your small acreage farm. It provides realistic, scientific, innovative content to help you make your property and animals productive, healthy, and cost efficient!

Heidi Primrose

About Heidi Primrose

Although she grew up in a small town in Iowa surrounded by agriculture, Heidi Primrose never imagined she would one day marry a farmer and live less than 15 miles from where she was born. But 13 years ago, she started dating a farmer. During their 5-year courtship she learned a lot about raising cattle and sheep, baling hay, and planting and harvesting corn. Not only did she fall in love with a farmer but she fell in love with a way of life. Eight years of marriage and three children later, Heidi could never imagine her life any other way. The ups and downs of farming can be a struggle but she is grateful for the life her and her family lead. Heidi works as a Speech Pathologist for the local Area Education Agency but is also a full-time mother and farmwife.

About Heather Barnes

Heather grew up in the city but farming is in her blood. Her dad grew up on the farm and her maternal great-grandpa was a hog and crop farmer.

Heather left Virginia after graduation and spent almost 11 years as an Agriculture Agent with North Carolina Cooperative Extension.
