I am Alicia Schmitt, an Iowa farm mom, aspiring traveler, chef of the Schmitt farm, and lover of all things pork!
My husband and I live in north central Iowa where we raise pigs in modern pig barns. I grew up on a cattle farm, so raising pigs is a new adventure for me. I married into a family that has a farrow to finish hog operation, I am enjoying every moment of my new adventure and I hope you do too!
The Pork Diaries is a food blog with bits and pieces of our life on the farm sprinkled in.
I am a Freelance Writer/Blogger for Successful Farming Magazine owned by Meredith Corporation, you can find my blog here.
Here are some other great places and organizations where you may find me volunteering and investing my time:
Iowa Corn -District 2 Committee
Common Ground Volunteer
Iowa Farm Bureau Federation
National Pork Board
