The Pharms

Our Farm

The farm we live on was purchased, on February 26, 2009, at an auction. The location and setup is ideal for Adam and the farming operation. We are in close proximity to Adam’s grandparent’s and parent’s homes. This cuts down on the driving time when equipment or livestock has to be moved. The farm has 140 acres, 120 of those acres are able to be used to plant crops. On the property there are three Harvestore Silos and an elevator that is set north of the house. The west one is 20X50, the next one is 20X60, and the east one is 25X80. There is an elevator in the middle of the Harvestores that also has silos inside of it. There are several buildings located on the farm to store equipment and hay. Along the road there is 450 feet of concrete bunk line, and five or six acres of lot space which leaves room for a lot of cattle.

The two-story farmhouse we call home.

This silo used to have the previous owner's name on it.
Adam had a sticker made with our name, and used a
cherry picker to put up the new sign. It is great to finally have
our name up there!

This is the view looking west, the horizon line is the end
of our property. This is the first crop Adam planted on our farm
in the spring of 2009. You can see the emerging corn plants in the field.

bunk line used to feed the calves.

Pharmacy School
I attend pharmacy school at the University of Missouri Kansas City. The building where I attend class is named The New Health Sciences Building; it houses both the pharmacy and nursing programs. The building was completed in the fall of 2007 and has technology to enable the lectures we have in Kansas City to be broadcast in real-time to the satellite students in Columbia, Missouri. Each pharmacy class admits 107 students at the KC campus and 27 students at the satellite campus. The school is located on Hospital Hill. The location of the NHSB is within walking distance of the UMKC Medical and Dental Schools. Truman Medical Center and Children’s Mercy are very close as well. The close proximity of the school to these hospitals is ideal for students. It enables them to apply the knowledge they have learned in the classroom to real situations and patients without traveling long distances to do so.
