The Blog

Welcome to the Schoentrup Farms Blog.

Your leisure reading destination for farming information! I am Olivia Schoentrup, farmer, wife, soon-to-be mom, and information sharer!! I have always been, what I call, a whole picture thinker. I like to know how the whole process works for anything I am doing or researching. It is because of that, I believe, it is important to me to share as much information about our farm as I can, with YOU!

In todays world, it can be hard to know what is good, bad, ugly, or completely normal. I want to share our farm with you in a very open and honest light.

If you don’t know much about us, you can visit our home page or browse through the posts below to get a better idea of me, my husband, Paul, and our farm.

I do not currently have a set timeframe that I will release new posts, however, when I post a new one, I will share it on our Facebook page and provide links for it in our email list.

Which reminds me, if you are interested in our products and want to sign up for our email list, go here. You will be the first to know any pertinent information we have for the farm along with a monthly newsletter.

I hope you enjoy your time here and leave with a better understanding for our farming operation!
