About Me

Michelle Bufkin HeadshotMy name is Michelle Bufkin, I am the brains and sometimes creative behind this blog. I am a recent graduate from Auburn University with a degree in Agriculture Communications. I am pursuing my Master’s Degree in Agricultural Communications from Texas Tech. My thesis is focusing on the shift in consumer perceptions before and after beef cattle farm tours.

My passion is sharing agriculture’s story. I fully believe that agriculture can only continue to operate with the consent of the public, so we need to step up and start educating the public. I co-own a Belted Galloway farm, Bufkin Family Farms, with my family. I am also a freelance writer/photographer, as well as a social media manager.

In my spare time (when I’m not working, doing homework or writing) I like to travel. I am aiming to hit all 50 states by the time I am 30.

  1. Great article and site! Continue the posts and help by adding some sources. Spreading the truth and information are very important, thanks again.


  2. […] are monitored closely. Also, every living thing has hormones, as a fellow blogger and farm-girl Michelle […]

  3. Any chance you could set your blog up to be linked to feedly(or any other blog reader)? I have all the other blogs I follow there and it would be convenient to follow you there as well. Thanks!

    • I would love to do that! How do I get this done for you?

      • Hhhhmmm… That is a good question. I just read them. I’ve never set one up. 🙂

        I talked to someone else about it once and they told me it needed to be set up as an RSS feed. But i’m not sure how you go about doing that. They got there’s switched and I now get there blog on my feedly reader.

        Sorry, I don’t know much about it.

      • Alright, here is what I’ve got for you…


        This will help explain how to make your blog able to be read on feedly(the most popular RSS and blog reader). This will also help to increase your level of influence and networking since your blog will be available more readily to other people. Feedly currently has over 15 million users and I think that might help you get your message out a bit better.

      • Awesome! Thank you so much. I will work on this once I finish working on the farm. I appreciate your help!

      • This is a really helpful site, and we learned about chickens and selective breeding as the key to their size. The only pesky thing about larger chickens for the two of us is when we buy chicken, it is hard to cut the breast meat into convenient-sized pieces that cook at the same rate on the BBQ. Bring back the chicken from 20 years ago! 🙂

  4. Spent my first weekend at Auburn for the A&M game. Have to say that I love Auburn. It’s now my second favorite school… we stayed very close to the Vet school. Here’s what I said about the fan experience at Auburn: http://fridayforgood.com/2014/11/10/on-friends-football-and-fans/. Thanks for the article. I’m following you now. I read a very interesting article about Gluten and the theory that roundup might be what’s causing the intestinal reaction, not the wheat itself. European countries seem to have the right idea when they ban that stuff. Did we learn nothing from DDT back in the 70s? Looking forward to reading what you have to say in the future! Best wishes and Gig’Em War Eagle!!

  5. I just found your blog today…great job!

  6. You’re doing a great job!

  7. Great content, I’m subscribing now. Any articles on antibiotics in chickens? Thanks!
