two farmers get married


Two years ago from today I married my best friend, favorite farmer, and fellow bacon lover. It’s been quite a ride!

PAJ_0806-A-5X5BWSepiaTaylor and I have been together for over 9 years. However, the last two years have been the most monumental. We got married; continued to farm on the east coast; had a dog; ate amazing food; drank lots of wine; worked our butts off; saw every sunrise during the farm season; fell asleep to every sunset; packed all of our belongings into a Toyota Tacoma; drove across the country; rented land; and are now the proud owners of Tumbleweed Farm. A lot has happened in two years!

I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to be married to someone who shares my same passion for farming. Being a farmer is hard work, but when you work side by side with your best friend amazing things can happen.


In typical farmer fashion I think we will be in bed by 9pm. Happy anniversary to us!

Here are just a few of my favorite farm to table dinners that I have served over the last two years.

I hope you all enjoy these farm fresh recipes as much as Taylor and I have.

    Happy anniversary to my favorite farming couple, Andrea and Taylor (and Henry). It seems hard to believe it’s been two years since your wedding, and what a wedding it was. Keep up the great work on the farm and experimenting in the kitchen with the absolutely phenomenal recipes you have developed, and posting the results. Love to you all from your Montana Aunt, Patty.

    What an adorable and lovely post. I loved your wedding pictures, and of course, all of those recipes made me eager to start cooking. Anything with fresh veggies and cheese calls my name 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

  34. Um yeah, I go to bed around 9 and I am definitely not a farmer. 😉 You guys are so cute together. Happy Anniversary!

  35. I can’t believe it’s been two years since you were married. I love what you are expressing here. I love your attitude about farming and food. You are wise.

    Love, Andy Orr’s mom

    You two are so adorable! And your recipes look amazing, I can’t wait to make one.

  37. Like everyone else I guess, I adore this post! :). Im also going to chime in with my wedding outfit which was a one strap Betsey Johnson tutu style white mini dress and a wreath made from white roses. I love your boots ensemble so much… and I also really love your husbands outfit!

    Moving right along…

    I also love the sounds of all those recipes. The quesadillas at the end particularly call my name and look like they could be an easy lunch for today! I’m super glad to have discovered your blog.. what a cutie pie you are! xoxo
