FCC KNOWLEDGE PODCAST - TALKING FARM AND FOOD - Episode 11: "I married a farmer: Choosing a life in agriculture"

In this episode, Sherri Pauls shares her experiences of marrying into agriculture and how resiliency, regular farm meetings and humour helped her along the way.

Sherri Pauls is a farmer from Southern Manitoba – but you might know her better from her hilarious take on farm life on Instagram as The Ginger Mom. She married into agriculture 17 years ago – and that can take some adjusting to.

In this episode, Sherri and Marty explore making that transition into farm life, the family dynamics that go with it and how resiliency, regular farm meetings and open communication — and of course, humour — are key to making their business a success.
