 Top 10 BENEFITS of Being a Farm Wife

As the winter months gave way to spring and countless tasks involved in running a family farm, I thought of all those women whose daily agendas of doing housework and caring for their family increased to include helping with farm operations.  I stumbled across the website www.farmersmarketonline.com which gave a list of 10 benefits to being a farm wife which I enjoyed.  I suspect however, that many farm wives would not trade their lifestyle for anything in spite of the tongue in cheek “advantages” listed below:

10. Getting to hear your husband say, “Don’t jerk the chain!”


9. Canning vegetables late into the night after devoting daylight hours to marketable crops.


8. Living in a 90-year-old farmhouse with bad plumbing.


7. Learning that cussing at machinery always helps.


6. Learning that 4 a.m. feedings apply to Holsteins too.


5. Being too busy for summer vacations.


4. Daily shopping trips (to John Deere or Case IH implement dealerships).


3. Being referred to as “The Wife”.


2. Knowing your husband loves you even though he yelled at you all day.


1. Being asked “Is dinner ready?” after working all day in the field.



This website invited readers to submit other humorous benefits to being a farm wife to [email protected], so I think I’ll put my two cents in:


11. Sharing romantic summer picnics with your true love if you agree to carry them out to him in the field.
