Who I Am & What I Do

Hello, I’m Macala. 

I’m a woman who loves cowboy boots, bow hunting, traveling the backroads, and wide-open spaces. Growing up, my family managed a 1200-acre farm in Minnesota that was dedicated to livestock and crop production. Like many girls who grow up in small towns, my mother longed for a city life so she moved us when she had a chance. 

While cities were exciting, I found they never really suited me. My heart was always homesick for the wide-open spaces I’d been raised on. In 2015, I couldn’t deny my heart any longer; I left life in large cities and began to explore small towns in Washington. This last fall, as I was walking a trail I’d ventured down so many times with my dogs along the Tolt River in Carnation, Washington, I finally decided to scale back the company I’d built to focus on the three things I truly loved to do –– farming, food and storytelling. 

Why? Because I realized that the global conversations surrounding food, farming and health weren’t getting any easier to understand. In fact, they were getting more confusing due to misinformation and lack of quality research being published online. And because many writers had never ventured outside of metropolitan areas, that writing only held a singular point of view.  I saw that many good farms, food producers, agricultural, health and wellness companies were struggling to tell their stories in order to address customer concerns in a relevant way. And I decided to help change that.
