Connecting Your Community to Their Food Sources with Kerri Giesbrecht
On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast you will meet, Kerri Giesbrecht.
From stilettos to rubber boots; Kerri was born and raised as a city girl that has turned a whole lot country thanks to her husband. Her farm is everything high maintenance (as her husband likes to call it). Kerri has all the animals (sheep, chickens and horses), she runs a U-Pick veggie garden in the summer, make livestock feed for not only her farm but other farms as well, runs a farm market in the summer months and on-farm events. And in her not so much downtime she helps her husband with his grain farm operation. According to Kerri she doesn’t sleep much, drinks far too much coffee, but she loves what she does and even on the hard days it’s better than going to her old 9-4 job in downtown Edmonton.

Review of The Week
Relatable and Informative
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ – Karin @ Wolf Creek Family Farm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America
“Katelyn interviews so many amazing women in agriculture from all over. Everyone has their own story of how they started (or were dragged, kicking and screaming) into agriculture and each is unique. It’s nice to hear the true stories behind how women are working in every aspect of agriculture and Katelyn is absolutely enamored with each one. Such a delight.”
