five marys ranch raised cookbook
File this book under "Women Who Inspire Me", meet Mary Heffernan. Rancher. Entrepreneur. Restaurateur. Wife. Mother. Together with her husband, Brian, they own Five Marys Farms in California and are raising their four daughters--all named Mary--while pasture-raising cattle, pigs, and heritage lambs. Their work ethic is as strong as their commitment to family, and Mary believes in nourishing meals shared together--in their cozy cabin in winter and around the outdoor camp kitchen in summer. Search her Instagram @fivemarysfarms to (try to) keep up with Mary and her go-getter Ranch gang!
