About Me

We have a 9-year-old daughter who helps me plant and care for our garden. We love to cook, try new dishes and fresh ingredients, and enjoy the "fruits of our labor." My family loves to sail, camp and enjoys playing outdoors.

Why I'm touring farms

As someone who loves to garden and cook, I want to talk with the farmers responsible for growing our food. I want to learn more about the pros and cons of organic produce as well as discover the techniques of animal care. My experiences on Illinois farms, combined with the knowledge gained through my studies in public health, will help me tell well-informed stories about food production for my blog followers, friends and family.
