The beautiful image I’m sharing was taken by our friend and client, Joy Philippi. Barb got to know Joy as they served together on the National Pork Producers Council board of directors. We have all been blessed to get to know her since! Joy grew up near Bruning, Nebraska, where she still has farm interests though her home is now in the Washington, DC, metro area. She has many skills and is presently growing her photography business.

This photo was not taken in the dead of winter. It was snapped on March 24 in Sac County, where we live, after an under-predicted and unwelcome 5+ inches of heavy, wet snow arrived. Joy grabbed this shot with her iPhone and tagged it appropriately: #iowa #snow #springsnowstorm #snapseed #distressedfxapp #iphone7 #iphonephotography #marchsnowstorm

As Joy transitioned from a full-time farmer to DC-area public policy career and renewed photographer, Heartland Marketing Group helped her establish a website. Her mission is to meld the two worlds she lives in – agriculture and the metropolis.
