Billi J. Miller is the creator of the widely celebrated Farmwives project, a two-book series about the remarkable contributions of farmwives. The books contain candid interviews and charming, handwritten recipes and have been featured on CBC, Global TV, and City TV.

Now, In Billi's third large book project, she takes an in-depth look at farm life through children's eyes. Only, not just interviewing "today's" children. This touching book delves into what it looked like to be a farm kid through the ages. Starting with her husband's 100-year-old grandmother, Miller asks what her days looked like when she came home from school, her memories of her mom, and what she did most on weekends.

Peppered with the hilarity and frank honesty only present-day "kids" can master, this book is filled with stories that will enlighten you, warm your heart, and make you laugh aloud. 

Sure to enlighten even the urban reader, "Farm Kids: Stories from Our Lives" teaches through story and a particular chapter "what we want you to know." Miller captured the thoughts of hundreds of farmers on what they wish non-farmers knew about us.

"You have a brightness in your spirit that is rare. You are documenting people’s lives. That is really special. Thank you for putting your heart into this."

— Amanda A.

Daughter of a Farmwife

 

Miller has been captivating audiences and readers by telling the stories of Canadian farm life since she married a 4th-generation farmer from east-central Alberta in 2010 and has spoken at dozens of events throughout Canada and the US on what she thinks makes farm life so extraordinary. She lives on a 111-year-old farm near Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada, with her husband and two children. She writes her books from her home office, her favourite chair, or her fave local (or not so local) coffee shops.

 

Look forward to lots of humour from "present-day" kids like:

Charlie and Benny Keddy, Nova Scotia, Canada. Age(s): 7 and 5 when Billi asks them:

 
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"


"What's the coolest thing about your Dad?"

And, also look forward to the wisdom that only those in the golden years can impart when Billi asks people like:

Vernon M., Saskatchewan, Canada

Age: 100
 
"What are key memories of your Mom?"

"What was a typical day like for you after you got home from school?"
