Growing Up a Farm Kid

Ever wonder what it’s like to grow up on a dairy farm? We created this fun collection of photos to share a glimpse of what life is like for a farm kid. Hope you enjoy!

If you’re a farm kid, you’ve probably taken a lot of family pictures in a barn or field.

Of course, some of these family pictures made it to the family Christmas card. I mean, whose Christmas card doesn’t feature a cow?

If you’re a farm kid, sometimes your playground looks a little different.

Or when there isn’t a playground around, you wear your best dress and put on a show for the cows.

You’ve probably spent at least one week every summer at the county fair.

As a farm kid, you’re probably pretty used to washing, brushing, and caring for your own 400+ pound calf.
