New to the Farm
My name is Katie Stockstill-Sawyer and my husband, Derek, and I own and operate a farm and livestock operation in Central Kansas. I married into the farming world in December 2010 and have spent every minute learning all that I can about farming and the rural lifestyle. I work in town as the marketing and communications manager for a commercial construction company, mobile occupational services company and safety consulting and training firm. In the hours outside the office, I help on the farm in any way I can – and sometimes that means just staying out of the way. This blog tracks my experiences as I learn what a life on the farm really means. I wouldn’t change this lifestyle for the world. Farmers and ranchers are some of the hardest working individuals in the world and they do what they do 365 days a year to ensure everyone has access to a safe, healthy and affordable food supply. If you want to learn more about agriculture or our operation, please don’t hesitate to contact me on this blog or at katie.sawyer@sawyerlandandcattle.com. I would love to show you around.

My nephew, Aiden, recently enjoyed a day at the pumpkin patch with his mother, myself and my son Evan.



Have you picked your pumpkin for the fall? How about the gourds we all love to display and the mums that liven up our homes and yards? Have you enjoyed those as well?

As in past years, I’ve added colorful mums to my front porch, decorated the house with pumpkins and gourds and enjoyed a pumpkin cookie or two.

It’s all thanks to a farmer that we have those great holiday staples and many of the holiday traditions that we all know and love.

Farmers don’t just make meals possible, they also deliver the pumpkins for Halloween, the trees for Christmas and the eggs for Easter. The impacts of farmers and ranchers goes far beyond the dinner table to many aspects of our favorite times of the year.

Poultry producers raise the hens that lay the eggs that we all love to dye. Tree farmers grow the evergreens that grace our living rooms and pumpkin farmers raise acres upon acres of pumpkins so we can slide, dice and enjoy the seeds.

So next time you enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey, your St. Patrick’s day corned beef or your Fourth of July hot dogs, remember it’s all possible because of farmers.
