Family is everything. They are there for us at the beginning and end, and throughout the twists and turns and mountains and valleys in between. At the end of a twisty turning gravel road near Danville, Kentucky I met a family that is there for each other, and a young woman who, with the support of that family is ready to take over the world.
Krystina Cook was one of the first women to invite me to her ranch when I started FarmHer. It just so happens I was in Iowa with little time and less funds for FarmHer travel while she and her pigs were in California. Fast forward nearly three years and I found my way to the Cook Pigs Ranch just outside of the quaint town of Julian in the mountains above San Diego.
Sometimes, or a lot of times really, life takes us in the most unforeseen but beautiful directions. Meet Jen Welch of The Crowded Acre farm in Buena Vista, Colorado. She grew up in Georgia, loving animals and working in a vet clinic before finding her way to Colorado in search of her next adventure. Around the time her first child was born Jen decided to make the leap from food service to the root of it all and started her farm, The Crowded Acre.
