Vanita's Biography :
My name is Vanita Blundell. I was born and raised in the Comanche County, Kansas. My dad was a farmer/rancher. We had cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens, and always had horses available to ride. I helped my dad with all the farming and ranching. I spent my high school summers farming with our 930 case, no cab, but had a lovely buggy top. In the spring and fall I rode with him to help neighboring ranches gather and work cattle. I married my high school sweetheart, Jim Blundell and we moved to Abilene, Texas where I was employed by Hasseloff Kennels- Boarding and Grooming and Lance Cracker Company.
We later moved back to Kansas where we helped my dad with the farming and the cattle. We started our family of 2 children. I helped manage a small restaurant and then started to cook for hunters. I worked for Don Lott Outfitter and United States Outfitters as a cook in turkey and elk hunting camps. I wrote a column in our local paper entitled the Country Gal and also had a unique opportunity to be the emcee for a production called “The Wilmore Opry”. It was a place where local people and out of town guests could perform to showcase their talents. There was no charge but the donations that came in assisted local people who were in need of help.
Now my husband and I have taken over all of my dad’s ground that he owned and leased, along with some other leased pastures. We enjoy our cattle operation, in addition, we also raise Bernese Mountain Dogs. I have had many life experiences that will assist you in finding just the right property.
