The #NonDairyCarrie Project


A guest blog over on got my big toe wet in the world of blogging a few months ago. I blame thank Janice and Michelle Payn-Knoper’s (Check out help at #ACFC11 for getting this blog on wheels. After reading this post yesterday by Darin Grimm I decided that I should host a series of guest blogs here. My rules for who could guest blog? Pretty much only 1. You couldn’t be part of the “Choir”. The topic? Food. I will also allow Farm. That’s all the direction I am giving as I want each blog post to be as different from the next as the people writing them. So who is writing you ask? Lots of people! Enough people that my original idea of a week looks like it will be stretched out into 2 weeks…. Here are a few of the people that have said yes!

@CandidCarrie “I write. And I like to take pictures. And I love M&Ms. And I own We Have Your Food, Wisconsin’s newest multi-restaurant delivery service.” She is also a mom and an animal lover. I love her wit, and on occasion we have had the exact same thought go through our brain.

@krittabug “Blogger, runner, eater of Sour Patch Kids. Twitter maven by day, cat lady by night. #TwitterCoffeeClub Founder & President. That’s big time right there.” I agree. Check out her blog!

@BizyMare “Good girls go to heaven. Redheads go where ever they damned well please.” My favorite ginger on twitter! Mare is sweet and funny too!

@Matt_King “defender of misfits” and so much more. I first heard Matt’s music on The Country Network. It stood out so much I immediately googled his name. I love his sound! Check out his website.

@sarandipity “I make up words, I process serve. I drive a Mini Coop & I write for loot. I drink the bloody mary & charity to boot. I’m red til’ I’m dead-welcome to my head!” Sara came out and visited my farm in October. Life has been pretty busy since then but we are hoping to have her post about that visit make an appearance. Check out her awesome coupon blog here!

Not all the posters are Twitter-ers…

Mandy, my best friend, grew up farming. Horses and cows were part of her everyday life. Eventually She went to school and became a scientist, was Miss Rodeo Wisconsin, met her husband and now she lives in a suburb of Boston and spends a lot of time in her pimped out minivan shuttling her kids to this or that.

Lisa, “Originally from Cary, IL. I came to college at the University of Illinois and never left. I live in Philo, IL now. After teaching elementary school for over 8 years, I’ve now been at the National Council of Teachers of English for 7 1/2 years and I teach at the University of Illinois. My favorite job is being mom to my daughters, Kelsey and Kaitlyn.” I don’t know Lisa in real life but I am thankful to have her insight!

I know there will be more to come but this is a fantastic start. I hope that each blog post starts a conversation and I am looking forward  to listening to everyone’s food and farm thoughts. Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you can follow the #NonDairyCarrie Project.
