This is us… in a medium-sized nut shell:


JOSH is a custom applicator and does custom spraying for farmers and local coops. He also buys and sells Sprayers. When he is not busy in the shop he enjoys playing the Daddy role at home, working with the campers, helping on the family farm or his favorite pastime (I am beginning to think)…riding his motorcycle.


MELISSA   is a work from home stay at home mom and the go-to girl for your rental needs.  Melissa likes to spend time with her family, friends, and projects sprucing up our 100 year old farm house!


COLE is ten years old!  He loves to stay busy…whether it is playing, helping Mom clean and work on the campers, helping Dad work outside on the yard ‘tinkering around’ or in the shop with farm machinery, or being the BIG brother to his little sisters.  Cole plays soccer during early fall and  flag football, too! The winter months he stays busy with Basketball! When you meet him, don’t let his innocent smile fool you…he has the fiery personality to match his red hair!


AUBREY  is our eight year old beauty with a heart of gold. She really enjoys helping Mom with things in the house and kitchen. She has a very strong servant -hood personality always looking for ways to be helpful! She has recently started piano and gymnastics! She loves all music and doing tricks on the trampoline! 


LEXI is seven! I am not sure how that happened! She loves to make you laugh and smile. She loves all things girlie and all things boy! You will often find her getting dirty outside in a dress! She loves to play soccer and draw- she is quite the little artist! 


JAX is an energetic ball of fur. He is 5 years old  and really takes on the personalities of his breeds. He is part Boxer and Newfoundland. Some days are more exhausting than others, but we sure do love him! Don't be surprised if he greets with a stick-- he loves new friends!
