Meet Emily, the voice, writer, and photographer behind the Blog Hearty Sol
Hey I'm Emily!
First of all, it's a crazy world out there, people and I have no idea where any of our social platforms are headed, but I can tell you this. As long as internet and computers are a thing I will be right here sharing hearty style recipes, our family farm story and our handmade home. The only guarantee that you won't miss out on these videos and blog posts is by joining our email list. (I'll also send you a free digital copy of my Field Meal Recipe Book!)
What you will find here on the blog
Welcome to Hearty Sol where, we will share some of our farms legacy, projects, recipes and DIY ideas and we hope to hear from you as we travel this road! Join us on our journey to find purpose, balance and joy in this simple everyday life! Tour our family dairy farm here!
Our dairy farming story started long before I was born.
I come from 5 generations of farmers. Our original dairy farm, which is not where we live now, was started by my Great Grandma Sophie! She was a hard working woman who wanted a dairy farm, convinced her husband to let her buy one. As they grew older, they moved into town, and my Grandpa Herb and Grandma Katie took over. They raised up 9 hard working kids, there, on the farm. They grew older and moved to town. My dad was the only one who wanted to farm. I was 1 years old when we moved to out to our family Dairy Farm. My 2 siblings and I grew up there. As kids we helped with milking, baling hay, chores and fed baby calves.
The farm kids head to college and see the world
My husband and I met in high school (he was a year ahead of me). We both attended colleges in Wisconsin. He for 6 years and me for 4. I also studied in Barcelona, Spain, which really sparked my passion for traveling/ adventuring and he studied all kinds of Agricultural Business/ Animal Science and Welding.
The farm cycle continues
We married and had 2 kids. We moved to our current dairy farm in 2012 and have been dairy farming along with my parents since then. I left my corporate event and hospitality producer position after 12 years to be able to bring our whole family here to the farm, vs. having the kids grow up at an in-town daycare. Then we had 2 more kids!
Farming is simply in our blood
We are blessed to get to work and see my parents nearly every single day. Our kids are so lucky to work hand in hand with grandma and grandpa.
The Hearty Sol Blog
In early 2018, I started this blog after wanting to have an outlet to share recipes, DIY projects and our farm family story! I love sewing, working with leather and wood, creating simple hearty recipes, fun projects and keeping up with our menagerie of children, gardens and animals around here.
Our family is honored that you have chosen to follow along here at Hearty Sol! You can follow our daily goings-on here on my Instagram page.
I share creative content, focusing on living simply on purpose. Including recipes, inspiring projects, creative parenting, and a handmade home.
"I am an active follower. My kids and I learned how to sew thanks to the Hearty Sol, Simply Sewing Video Series. I'm so inspired by her classic design, sewing tutorials, parenting advice and watching their life on the farm!" - blog subscriber
