My Farmer in His New Carhartt

Spring is in the air in the Midwest and The Farmer is itching to get fieldwork started! However, it is still a bit too early for us to be planting corn or soybeans. We have been able to haul manure in an effort to add nutrients to the soil.

However, on a sun filled Sunday, my Farmer doesn’t do fieldwork. Instead we did some work around the farm. Thanks to Carhartt, my Farmer had a new coat to wear while he did his work!!

Carhartt’s website describes this black Ketchikan Jacket as a 10-ounce, 100% cotton canvas with a Dura-Dry waterproof breathable membrane. This jacket features 100% polyester waffle-knit lining, and fully taped waterproof seams. There is a full length front-zipper with outer and inner storm flaps as well as inside pockets to keep your belongings dry. This jacket is durable and My Farmer will surely test that durability!!

The first thing he wanted to fix was our outside living area. Sometime during the winter heavy winds blew down part of our patio walls. A few nails got the wall back up.

These farm projects started with just he and I doing a few things while the kids played in the yard. However, as soon as we started to do the work, the kids immediately showed up to help!

The Farmer needed to move some manure hose from one field to another. So he and Lion Cub hopped in our little utility tractor and hauled the hose.

Lastly, we needed to grind some feed for the hog barns. The Farmer and our Monkey were banging on the feed bin to see how much feed remained. These are tall bins and you can tell by hitting on them whether they are running empty or not.

Thanks to my fellow Real Farmwives of America for this opportunity to review this great coat!! Be sure to visit the website to learn how you can win your own Carhartt!  You could surely benefit this spring from a new coat!

Thanks again to Carhartt for providing my Farmer with this great coat!! And while they provided the coat, the opinion and pictures are my own!


  1. We do some banging on our bins too. Glad to see you made it home, and glad the jacket was light weight and breateable! Crazy Indiana weather!
