On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you’ll meet Megan Callahan.

She is the Jill of all trades at the Lazy D C Bar Ranch. Megan has lots of irons in the fire. From Raw milk to riding lessons, mule breeding, donkey rescue, Mom & Foster Parent, hay sales, a pumpkin patch and Glamping tents in the near future! The many avenues for revenue prepare her for if certain markets take a hit.

Megan lives in one of the most incredible towns between Missoula and Kalispell on the Flathead reservation. St. Ignatius has a wonderful community, along with breathtaking views. An agriculture prominent area helps for a relaxing vacation spot and a good place to raise a family.

Mules, donkeys, and horses are her first passion, along with educating on the differences between them and their varying needs.

During pumpkin patch season, you can usually find Megan at the pony rides or wandering around, connecting with the community. Attendance has doubled every year, and they are just wrapping up their 4th year.

From time in the tractor to teaching, she loves it all! (Ok, maybe not changing hand-line irrigation.)
