Farm Crush Friday: Landmark Creamery

I have had a crush on these women for years now. Ever since the first time I picked up an elegant round of Petit Nuage during a shift at Cow & Quince in New Glarus. I knew right away I was experiencing something different: something special. Anna Landmark and Anna Thomas Bates, fondly known simply…

Austin + Waco, Texas

It’s become an annual tradition. Every spring, before the planting season really takes off, I take a trip without my Carrot to somewhere new with some of my favorite people. It’s just the reset button I need to make it through another farming season and has become, in my opinion, a non-negotiable part of my…

Best. Weekend. Ever. + RECIPE: Build-Your-Own Pizza Pudgie Pies

Let’s talk about things that I love. Like pudgie pies. Pudgie pies are high on the list of things that I love. Especially if they are of the build your own variety. (I mean what build-your-own situation do I not go crazy for? See exhibits A, B and C). Pudgie pies are right up there with long…

MOSES Organic Farming Conference + Meal Plan + RECIPE: Tater Tot Shepherd’s Pie

3000+ farmers, academics and friends. 450 minutes of workshops attended. Three new farming books purchased (including The Local Economy Solution, Rebuilding the Foodshed and Cold Antler Farm). (Somehow only) four beers. Two keynote speakers who were both storytellers, and both encouraging us to share our story of organic farming (!!!!!!). One adorable man named Eugene…

Farm Crush Friday: Sacred Blossom Farm + a GIVEAWAY!

It’s been a long time since I rattled on about one of my farm crushes (14 months to be exact). I guess it takes a big business and an even bigger crush to pull me back into my rotation of sharing the farm relationships that most impress and captivate me. Tony DiMaggio of Sacred Blossom…

Four Days in Iceland + RECIPE: Icelandic Hot Dogs

Our second stop on farmer vacation 2017 was Iceland: the land of gorgeous scenery, geothermal energy and the infamous stopover. It was quite the shock traveling from 65-and-sunny Portugal to Iceland- eighteen degrees and shrouded in mist- but as soon as we hopped on the bus that would take us from the airport to downtown…

Four Days in Portugal + “RECIPE”: Portugese Couvert

Let’s talk about vacation and good food and happy things, because really, what else is there to do at a time like this? Don’t get me wrong. It’s not just fun and games over here. I’m working hard to find my own path forward through this whole mess. I’m just like you. I can’t stop…

Where I’m At + RECIPE: Bacon & Pecan Belgian Waffle

It’s been one hell of a week my friends. One hell of an emotional, exhausting kind of a week. Arriving home in Wisconsin after a picture perfect vacation (much more on this later!) to forty-degree weather and what can only appear to be a spring thaw in mid-January, diving 100 miles per hour into work with a board…
