The Zweber family has been farming on their farm for just over 100 years. Emily and her husband Tim are partners in Zweber Farms with Tim’s parents who took over the operation from Tim’s Grandpa back in 1984. The 100 cow herd is a family run operation that someday Tim and Emily’s three children may become partners in as well.
In addition to being a busy mom, farmer, and writer for their farm blog, Emily also works part-time as the Executive Director for the AgChat Foundation which works to empower farmers and ranchers to connect with customers about farming via social media. She also enjoys cooking and sharing recipes. Food is what fuels our bodies every day and Emily believes by knowing your farmer and your food you are able to make healthier choices. As a farmer and a mom, Emily says, “I need a lot of energy to keep me going! I need to know that the food going into my body is healthy so I can continue to be healthy for my family.”
