Meet Amanda Carey Goodfellow, a farmer who works alongside her dad and grandfather on about 1,000 acres and who milks 180 cows using robot milking machines. She takes a break in the field with us and talks about:

- Remodeling a home and barn and getting married all in a year
- How she blows of steam when the day’s work is stressful
- What a fun day on the farm looks like for three peas in a pod
- The age she knew she didn’t want to be a lawyer
- The No. 1 thing she worried about looking good on her wedding day
- A realistic viewpoint of what success means to her
- How she convinced her dad that she was dedicated to farming
- Being involved in Farm Bureau, Michigan Milk Producers Association and local 4-H
- Some similarities and differences between her farm and one she interned with
