Most summer nights are spent driving to their current job, my vehicle or truck bed serving as a literal feed wagon and traveling picnic table. Gathering together as a family over a meal is important to us no matter what season we are in. I know the same goes for other farming and ranching families like ours.

Since Hayfield Meals started, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with so many other wives like myself who were in need of a community like this one to connect with. I share recipes, meal prep, snacks, grocery shopping, travel tips, favorite products, our guys in the field, ways your kids can be involved and more.

I’m working on a cookbook for 2023. Trademark is pending.

You can follow along and interact with us on Instagram!


Cooking for them is something that has brought me a lot of joy and, if I’m being honest, delivering dinner is sometimes the only 30 minutes we see our guys during the day. I’ve had the best time in my kitchen for what feels like the first time, especially with my little ladies as we go get groceries together, chop vegetables, marinate meat, lick the spoon, and pack up a hot meal to take to Papaw and Daddy for the night.

I want this to be a fun community for everyone, full of encouragement, laughs, and cooking. I’ll have everything here and on our Instagram account, but please tag and give credit on my content that you share. I’d love to see your meals and deliveries in action!

A fun addition I’ve wanted to add to Hayfield Meals whether you’re a busy farm/ranch wife or not! These meal plans can benefit anyone and will save you so much time because the hard work and decision making is done for you. Plus, these meals are simple, hearty, and GOOD. I love feeding people. This is just one way that I want to extend that love to you and lend a hand. Meal planning doesn’t have to be difficult, neither does shopping or cooking. 

I truly enjoy being in my kitchen. Fresh wildflowers in the window sill, a good playlist going, and preparing a meal for my family is life giving to me. Gathering around the table has almost become foreign. I know during hay season, harvest, branding season, busy schedules or what have you-breaking bread with one another seems to be a struggle during those times. It’s the reason I started hayfield meals, bringing our table to the tractor. I pray that no matter how busy you are, this will give you the opportunity to save time and spend more of it with the ones you love.

Each week, your subscription will include your weekly meal plan that consists of 5 dinners, a tractor snack (something quick and easy to eat on the go), and a desert. You will also get the recipes as well as a completed grocery list all in PDF form that's ready to print out and throw in a binder for future use
