Iris Wall, or Miss Iris as those around call her, is a special soul.  One of the FarmHers we planned on visiting during a trip to Flordia fell through at the last minute so I did a little digging into my emails to see if I could come up with a woman to visit.  I found a message from the Florida Farm Bureau telling me about a spirited lady named Iris.

I first heard about The Grrls Meat Camp a few years back on social media.  It is a group of all women who operate in the field of animal butchery.  Some of them are FarmHers, some are chefs, some just like food, but they are unique in that they are all women, operating in a field typically reserved for men.  Though the group I became connected to Catherine Manterola.

As we left the congestion of Denver and headed south towards our destination of Puelbo, Colorado the land stayed flat and smooth with the mountains always in our sight.  We arrived in Pueblo at the home of Kirsten Vold.  Kirsten grew up in a rodeo family, on the road with her mom and dad.  Her mom was a rodeo trick rider - and still, teaches the sport to this day.  Her father, a self-proclaimed vagabond, built and grew one of the leading rodeo stock companies in the industry, Harry Vold Rodeo Company.

I never set out to be a TV Host.  I still don’t introduce myself that way when people ask what I do, and probably never will.  I am a photographer, business owner, wife, mom and woman that is desperately trying to keep all of those balls in the air.  On top of that, I just happen to have a TV show, that is an extension of the work I have been doing for nearly four years now, shining a light on the women of agriculture.

I truly believe everything happens for a reason, though the path there may not always be smooth.  On the day I was supposed to visit Music Meadows Ranch our communication had gotten off and I showed up at Elin Parker Ganschow’s Music Meadows Ranch that houses her Sangres Best grass fed beef operation about five hours earlier than expected.

September 05, 2016

We arrived at Crooked Lake Ranch in the dark, early morning, greeted by the headlights streaming out of a collection of trucks hooked up to trailers, their exhaust creating small clouds in the damp early morning air.  The ranchers and their help had the horses loaded and ready to ride.  We followed the trucks down the road a ways, watching the sun rise to our east, slowly shining a light on the native beauty that is Central Florida.
