“I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world.”
I grew up on a farm in Montana. As a teen girl, I waited for the day I could leave the farm for urban life. But now as an adult, I miss the farm, and I cherish each moment I am am able to re-visit and spend time on my old stomping grounds where I grew up on a beautiful wheat farm & cattle ranch in Montana..
This photo gallery features some of my favorites that I’ve taken on various farms and ranches in Montana and Eastern Washington.
