OFI 1599: “Half Of The Pay In Farming Is Enjoying The Job” | Grace | The Shepherdess At Harmony Farms |
The Shepherdess At Harmony Farms is named Grace, and she has an unbelievable story. Starting at the age of 11 she lived in the suburbs of Austin, Texas and was purchasing and re-marketing garage sale items online. She developed an incredible talent for online marketing during her teen years to the point that she developed a 7 figure apparel company using the marketing skills she had developed. Then, there was a drastic change.
Grace was living with her parents at this time, and they decided that it was time to move to an area where they could purchase some land and get further away from encroaching urban sprawl. This took the whole family to northeast Texas, where her folks bought 30 acres. In an effort to keep their agricultural property tax exemption, they began raising sheep, and for the first two years, Grace wanted nothing to do with this. However, in 202o that all changed.
Once Grace embraced taking care of the livestock and farming, she fell in love with the lifestyle and work. This led her to develop a passion for findng a way to stay on the farm. She took the online marketing skills that she already had and started applying them to the families farming enterprise and "The Shepherdess At Harmony Farms" was born.
Today Grace is selling premium Dorper Sheep, online courses, merchandise, sheep supplies and other SWAG. She is fired up about telling young people how they will be able to get into farming and why that is a great choice. And, she is putting outstanding content out on her blog and her YouTube Channel. And, I am lucky enough to interview her today.
