Amber Montgomery Named Hempstead County Women’s Farm Bureau Committee Ag Woman For The Month Of November

By Staff, 11/1/20 6:33 PM
The Hempstead County Women’s Farm Bureau Committee has selected Amber Montgomery as our Ag Woman for the month of November.
Amber is a Registered Nurse and Facility Administrator at DaVita Hempstead County Dialysis Center. She was raised in Spring Hill which is just a few miles south of Hope. She is happily married to Bill Montgomery who is a native of Hope. Between the two of them they have four grown children: Ally Askew and her husband Jacob, Robert Moore and his wife Sonya, Blake Montgomery and his wife Hannah, and Bryce Montgomery and his wife Maegan. But their biggest blessings would have to be the four grandchildren they have and one on the way.
To begin, Amber was raised on a farm that had broiler houses, cows and even a few horses. Some of her fondest memories were growing up on the farm with her two sisters, riding horses and fishing. Of course, there were always chores to do on the farm, most of her chores were helping in the chicken houses. At a young age Amber didn’t really realize what an impact having a farm makes and really what all is truly required in order to keep a farm running. But now as an adult she sees the huge impact that Agriculture makes in not only her families day to day operations but also the worlds. She has always said that she got her work ethic from being on the farm at such a young age. Once she had a baby deer that she had to go bottle feed every morning before she went to school. This and many other things on the farm are what have helped in shaping her into the person she is today. Watching her dad get up every morning and go to work and then come home late in the evening and work cows, tend to the chicken house, and even cut up whatever cow or deer before going to bed. Then he would wake up and do it all over again the next day.
Life is completely different for Amber and Bill today with all their responsibilities on the farm and their other jobs. Their days consist of Amber starting off work at the dialysis unit and Bill at their Title Company, Southwest Arkansas Title Company, here in Hope. After a full day of their nine to five jobs, as they say, they come home and get geared up for their daily farm work. They both go out to pasture to check cows. Right now they wrapping up on their fall calving operation so almost all of the exciting times are over. They have just a few more cows to calve this year. While most people enjoy going to the lake, or camping, for their weekend getaways, the Montgomery’s spend their weekends checking cows, building fence or whatever else is required on the farm. Of course, they always do those things around going to church. They enjoy attending New Hope Baptist Church.
One of the biggest joys of farm life now is having the grandkids around on the farm. They get such an enjoyment taking the grandkids riding thru the cows to see all the new baby calves on their side-by-side. Their expressions and excitement for their passions makes a hard days work well worth it. They are forever great full to live in this great country and to be able to do what they love on their farm.
