Please Don’t Judge Me. Or My Food.

Delve into my pantry, refrigerator, and freezer and you will find an assortment of food products and ingredients. I do a fair amount of home cooking, even on weeknights so I always have eggs (regular conventionally-raised eggs, by the way), meats (A LOT Of turkey, of course), pasta, bread, rice, seasonings, etc. at the ready.

Are animal activists calling the shots?

I’ve been in a bit of a writing slump regarding agriculture topics. It’s not that I don’t enjoy writing about agriculture or the poultry farmers I know; I think sometimes I just get burned out dealing with the onslaught of misinformation, fear marketing, and flat-out false (and by that, I mean purposely false) information making […] Read more…

The Big Event & Post-Hibernation

It’s taken me 72 hours of mini-hibernation but I think I’m finally catching up on my sleep.

Town Meets Countryside.

And from our home, we can see horses, cows (both dairy and beef), and fields […] Read more…

Which leads me to thoughts of the completely amazing malts (hot fudge, please!) at the Minnesota State Fair. Which brings me to this blog post. You know, about farmers and the State Fair. See […] Read more…

Keeping Turkeys Warm and Happy.

It was back to work for me this week, as I enjoyed a little calm in the office before the storm known affectionately as “January-through-March.” Most people assume November (Thanksgiving) is my busiest time working for Minnesota Turkey, but the truth is, we’re busy all year long – and especially during the winter when we […] Read more…

Minnesota Turkeys

Why Raising Turkeys Indoors Makes Sense.

Last week, I debuted my first blog post for Successful Farming’s “Women in Agriculture” family of bloggers on Agriculture.com. I am beyond thrilled to be asked to contribute to this website on a regular basis and I’m humbled by the amazing women in my company. Does this solidify my status as an #agnerd? I believe […] Read more…
