I am a farm girl born and raised. With the harvest season just around the corner, I have farming on my mind. I thought it would be fun to search for some great farm girl shirts! Please don’t mind me… I’m going to go a little country on ya!
Growing up a Farm Girl
There is NO better place to be raised than on a farm in the country. As a kid, I used to roam every where. I’d run down by the creek, and out in the fields. My brother and I would explore the old barn and buildings on our property. We’d climb trees and hay bales. We had pigs, cows, and crazy chickens. We had wild cats and a big, black dog named Rocky. Freedom to wander and explore- that was my childhood growing up in the country.
Harvest is the like the end of the season “big game” of farming. We’re gearing up for harvest. We’re ready to get the crop out and get paid! It’s fall y’all!
For those of you who may not realize it, farmers have a killer schedule during planting and harvest season. I laughed out loud when I saw this t-shirt, because it’s o-so-true. You may not see your farming spouse for about 6 weeks or so. They’re out in the fields from sun up until sun down (and sometimes all through the night!).
Iowa is the largest corn producer in the United States. We love corn here. (Seriously, our sweet corn is the BEST.) So, so of course, I had to include a couple of corn-y shirts in my search for fun farm girl shirts.
For Mom To Be
I’ve got three kiddos, and that’s enough for me! When I was in search for farm girl shirts, I came across these cute maternity ones.
Here’s a couple that just made me giggle…
For My Best Friend (also a Farmer)
One of my very best friends on this planet is a dairy farmer, so of course, I had to include a few shirts for her in my hunt for the perfect farm girl shirt. Trust me, she’s laughing right now…

This pretty much sums up farm life…
In the End…
In the end, I’m really just a small town girl living in a lonely world. (Ha.Ha. Had to throw in a little Journey reference there.)
Seriously, though, being born and raised on the farm was such a blessing. It made me appreciate and value hard work. I always said that when I grew up, I was going to get out of Iowa. I did for awhile, but my roots run deep here.
In the end, I came back home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.
