Angela Twombly is “The Inquisitive Farmwife!” She loves working beside her husband on their farm. She grew up a farmer’s daughter, but only when she became a wife did she learn to drive a tractor, run an impact gun, shag tanks, or wash a combine! They are field farmers, but her “hobby homestead” of a back yard is continually growing! She loves animals, and working with the land makes her feel close to her father God Almighty! So many beautiful memories flood her mind in her garden or kitchen; it’s also a perfect place to make new ones! She loves learning a new skill, and then share her knowledge with others! She has a large garden and has recently added a greenhouse! She cans, bakes, quilts, and crafts. Life is a journey, and she’d love if you join her on hers!
