This past summer, I had a couple of the greatest weeks of my life in shooting. They were all spent on organic farms across Minnesota and Wisconsin and I was simply so inspired. I was both fascinated and thankful for all of the farmers who work so hard to give us good food. It's one of those things that we know, but maybe don't realize the extent of the hard work and respect that the farmers are giving to the food we eat. It's hard work and I commend them all!
One of the project we worked on during that time is still rolling out, but this shoot is one I can share right away! Iglika Petrova is an amazing food and prop stylist that I have the pleasure of collaborating with and we traveled out to Turnip Rock Organic Farm in Clear Lake, Wisconsin. Rama and Josh are the owners of the farm which is pretty impressive - they grow everything from vegetables to cattle, pig, sheep and even make their own cheese on site. We spent the day with their crew on the land and Iglika worked her magic by creating some finished recipes on her blog, Sprig of Thyme. Check out her delicious recipes here!
I felt so free and creative out on these farms - it was truly a beautiful experience! I can't wait for the next assignment!
