Gratitude & Farmer Knowledge + RECIPE: Blueberry & Kohlrabi Chicken Salad

My husband and I spent last weekend at the Organic Vegetable Producers’ conference in Madison: a beautiful two day affair of organic pioneers, newbies, researchers and friends. The tone at this particular conference (which is only in its third year) fills my heart with so much joy because in addition to the kinds of conversations…

My Tribe + RECIPE: Potato Crusted Winter Quiche

This weekend we spent 48 hours with 2300 other organic farmers at our favorite annual farming conference. It was just the breath of fresh air we needed to launch ourselves into what will certainly be the craziest eight months of our lives. I don’t know why I’m surprised. This annual conference always does a remarkable…

RECIPE: Savory Porridge Breakfast Bowl

Quick meetings for collaborative…

Hire the most supportive, thoughtful, kind team of people you can find. Thank them for their amazingness daily. Splurge on YumButter. Keep it your pocket…

Spring Fever + RECIPE: Winter Hash & Avocado Toast

Spring fever. Oh it’s in the air. Days are  getting longer. Which means my commute home is no longer in the dark and sometimes when I’m feeling extra ambitious, I can even get a little time with the pups on the trail before the sun goes down. And daylight savings, and with it more sunshine,…
