The Farmer Took a Wife is a faith-filled and farmland graphic tee business located in rural Nebraska.
The business started in 2015 after I had a year of staying home with her daughters after teacher for 5 years. I needed to feel creative again and I received a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas. I then decided to start putting tees up on Etsy as Say Something Tees and More, because I wanted my daughters to have shirts that said something more than princess or had characters from TV.
After successfully having an Etsy shop for 2 years I rebranded to The Farmer Took a Wife, as farm shirts were our most popular sellers. I then created our Shopify store.
The Farmer Took a Wife is a family job. Everyone chips in with such things as packaging, taking items to the post office, spreading the word, and more.
WHAT WE SELL
Our shirts are made mostly by sublimation. Sublimation is where the ink is dyed into the shirt making them extra soft. We also have several designs that are screenprinted onto the shirt.
We also sell Vinyl stickers, as I realized that some people loved our designs, but are not t-shirt wearing people. These give them an option of supporting our business on a smaller scale.
ABOUT THE OWNER
I'm Ashley and I'm the woman behind The Farmer Took a Wife. My faith is the most important thing about my life as it makes me a better farm wife and mom. My husband Eric and I will be married for 10 years in July 2021. He is a cattle farmer and we sell Angus and Hereford Bulls yearly at a sale in February. We have three amazing kiddos. Ellie is our oldest, she is a tomboy that loves horses, crafts, and being active. Maggie is our middle, she is a girly-girl, she loves sparkles, skirts, and learning how to read. Lawson is the baby, and will always be my baby boy. He loves all things farm, pretend fighting with dad at night, and telling me I love you too many times during the day. In my spare time I love to take photos, play board games with my family, and help with my kids' school.
