“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.
Many of the following farm life photographs, plus more, are available for licensing at iStock Getty.

To laugh is human but to moo is bovine.
