Hi, my name is Brandi Anderson and I am the owner of Women That Farm, LLC. My husband Nick plays a large part in my success as he's a man who will not take no for answer, has kahuna's bigger than anyone I have ever met and has pushed me to be a better businesswoman, mom and wife than I ever imagined!! Between him and my friends, I would not be where I am today!
I have typed out our story probably 50 times in way too much depth/not enough depth, so here's the highlights without boring y'all too much!
We got married in Las Vegas in 2012 four days after we jumped out of a perfectly good airplane and LANDED on our feet with a parachute of course! The best $410 we have ever spent, hahahaha!
We both used to work full time, plus some. We had three kids in three years, I wouldn't have it any other way, NOW. But those young years I wondered what the hell I did and struggled a LOT, so mommas in the trenches, hang in there, it does indeed get easier! Our youngest is now 6 years old and I now see why we made that decision for me to quit my corporate job and raise our kids on our terms and that I will NEVER ever regret!!
We have had calves/cattle since 2012 and have gradually expanded into pork, chicken and turkey!
While working a full-time job, honestly, I never wanted to become a stay-at-home mom, it just wasn't something I ever dreamt of. But when my husband said how about you raise kids and cattle.... that had a different ring to it, and I said absolutely! Thats when I decided I needed to bring something else to the table other than feeding cattle, why not sell meat, so in 2015 Women That Farm, LLC was born!!
To say this journey has been an easy one, would be an absolute lie, we have struggled, we have questioned why we do what we do, and I have wondered if it would be easier to just go get a 9-5, but at the end of the day it comes back to where our passion lies, agriculture!
Over the years we have sharpened our pencil and have become as efficient as possible to stay competitive in this ever-changing market. We have purchased a feed truck to haul all of our own feedstuffs, I mix and grind our own feed, while working alongside a nutritionist and some of the best veterinarians in the business. We are unique in the way we can feed our cattle, my brother and husband also own a chopping and manure handling company, so we can chop our own forage/corn and put our feed up in a short amount of time to feed our cattle all year round.
While we have learned to pivot and change plans A LOT being first generation farmers and learning as we go, we have learned that the American Dream is in fact still obtainable with some stubbornness, grit and grace!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out the site!
