The Real Farmwives of Colorado

The Farmwife Project is beginning to take shape and it may very well be one of the coolest projects around.

In the upcoming weeks, a group of agvocates are coming together right here on this site. They raise hogs, cattle, potatoes, bees, and children. They are farmwives, daughters, sisters, and mothers. And they are one of the most interesting collective voices of Colorado agriculture.

We are the Real Farmwives of Colorado and we will each be writing periodic blog entries that will appear on the Vermillion Farms blog. We will be agvocating and telling the stories that we would share with our sisters or our girlfriends at the kitchen table.

We will also have the opportunity to get together soon and the day will include chocolate, a photo shoot, a discussion about the issues we wish to address and…well, more chocolate.

You’ll be hearing more soon from The Real Farmwives of Colorado! If you’re interested in being a part of the Farmwife Project, please email me at for more information.

      The FarmWife Project is an ongoing thing. As women’s schedules ebb and flow, they tend to write more or less on the blog ( so we always welcome new voices. If you’re interested in writing, please drop me a line at and I’ll be glad to visit with you. Thanks! Rachel Vermillion
