High Heels and chicken poop

RosterIt happens fast…or at least it does in my world…one day I am dressed to the nines doing my thang out there on stage as a country music artist the next I am washing chicken poop off my front porch here on the farm.  I have been living my life for the last decade in that dichotomy. Life (a) I am a wife, mom of two lovely kids, you know the kind that run about in jogging pants and a pony tail…oh and I am also a female farmer…why is that a note worthy addition to my description of life (a) well it always seems to take people back when I tell them I am a farmer…”Oh so you like to garden”..most people come back with when I tell them what I do.  Well yes, I do like gardening I say” but what I do for a profession is farm. Life (b) I am a touring musician, singer songwriter that in fact has been very blessed to have had a wonderfully long career that made a nice living and in turn helped me to fund being a female farmer. In this life (b) there are all the trappings a girl tends to enjoy to some extent.  Great outfits that tuck you in, in all the right places and push you up and out where it matters…to well you guys know…makeup, hairspray, earrings, necklaces, belts, bracelets and scarves, be-jewel this rhinestone that…shoes… Lord i do love a great pair of high heels, they just make you feel so dang pretty don’t they? If there is one thing I try my best to avoid is the collision of life (a) and life (b) they just don’t mix…there is no place for fancy on the farm…highs heels and chicken poop…thats a bad idea all around.

My name is Peggy Lynn Marchetti. I am a wife, a mother of two beautiful, never boring children, and a farmer... that's right - a farmer... a female farmer to be exact. I live on a beautiful little third generation organic farm in middle Tennessee.
