Terryn Dreiling

Terryn lives and works on a large ranch with her husband and their three kids in the Sand hills of Nebraska. She is the creator of Faith Family & Beef, where she talks about mommin', ranching, and connection. She believes the stockmanship phrase "good movement draws good movement" applies in life as much as it does in moving cattle.

Terryn has gone from self-professed Enneagram nerd to certified Enneagram coach and co­host of the Type It Out podcast. She teaches the personality typing system in a way that's easy to understand, immediately applicable, and helps others draw good movement.

Kylie Epperson

Grounded in gratitude, Kylie shares her family farm, cultivating community by highlighting the imperfect balance of being a rural business owner, mother and farm wife. Kylie Epperson is a Northeast Missouri farmer, raising row crops, pigs and three children with her 4th generation farmer husband, Jordan.

Coming from the education field, her role on the farm stretches from raising kids, to parts runner, to office bookkeeper, to financial manager and more. Kylie is the co-host of the Midwest Farm Wives Podcast and has been sharing her farm story both on social media and in person on a regular basis.

Jena Ochsner​

Jena farms commercial row crops and raises beef cattle alongside her husband on his family's fifth generation farm in rural Nebraska, all while raising two little farm boys and sharing their farm story on social media. Her goal and heart behind sharing their family's generational farm story all comes back to a phrase her parents use to say: "drive back roads." A simple saying with an even deeper meaning - just like farm life.

Along with raising cows, crops, and country kids,Jena markets and ships her family's homegrown, dry aged beef to families all across the country. Farm life can be stressful which led Jena to take on yoga teacher training as a way to bring positive movement to her rural community.
