Agriculture writer living on dairy farm
   United States
  |   Brooten, MN

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $66

After two years in government relations and two years working for the America's largest dairy farm magazine, I've returned to the dairy farm as I complete my master's degree in dairy management and work for agricultural companies and publications in a freelance role.
My work has been featured in small and large publications, and I'm happy to say that all clients continue asking for more services.
