Put a little farm in your life.
Come on out to the farm and meet some Iowa women who cook, farm and know how to do stuff. We garden, raise chickens, hogs, dairy & beef cattle, goats, sheep, and maybe even a peacock or two. We are sassy, strong, independent women sharing our knowledge, recipes, and stories about farm life.
So if you are a foodie, interested in raising backyard chickens, knitting a sweater from wool you harvested or just want to eat real food we hope you will listen in to our podcast series and join the fun!
Welcome to our first episode of the podcast series Farm Women Food, where Iowa farm women tell their stories, share their wisdom, talk about real food and give practical advice about country life.
