Renaissance Mushroom Man

September 4, 2012

Stan Yockey is an enigma. First, he has two pugs that he may like more than most people and he collects hens on nests. You know the ones—the vintage candy dishes that adorn nearly every grandmother’s faux-oak china cabinet. This wouldn’t be so strange if Stan favored V-necks and Ricky Martin, but it’s entirely inconsistent with the turkey hide he’s tanning in his garage.

The Secrets of Backyard Chicken Farmers

August 6, 2012

My name is David Bucey.
I’m a backyard chicken farmer,

A Busch Raised in the Wild Kingdom

July 31, 2012

David Busch, a 33-year-old member of the Anheuser-Busch dynasty, does whatever he wants. But his “whatever he wants” isn’t about couch-surfing his way through adulthood with a gaming remote fused in his fist.

All in the Family

July 17, 2012

I grew up eating what was served to me. No one ever asked what I wanted, or offered an alternative to the salmon flopped on my plate flesh-side up, all pink and wet.

Want to hear what a certain girl with farm dirt under her fingernails sounds like? Listen up as Brenda Anderson sits down for a quick chat with Arianne McGinnis.

Feminista a la Carte

June 26, 2012

Arianne McGinnis has casually cropped hair and long bangs that she brushes off her forehead as if looking for her thoughts across the parking lot of the trendy burger joint we’re perched next to. Her speech is clipped, but interspersed with laughter. Her body moves awkwardly in an airy dress, as if unaccustomed to the freedom from what I imagine were perennial denim cut-offs rubbed with dirt from the fields in which she once worked. She reminds me of Jodie Foster.
