with ties to California agriculture.
My husband Brian and I are first generation ranchers working hard to raise premium quality beef, pork and lamb to share with families all over the United States.
I have been a serial entrepreneur my entire life and started an online course and nationwide community to inspire and push others to build their business and brand.
who mentors others to build their brand.
with brands I love.
I partner with brands to share and promote their products that align with our mission. I am a long-time Carhartt Ambassador and collaborate with numerous other brands.
AND RANCH RAISED PARENTING.
My parenting changed drastically when we moved to the ranch - and we share everything agricultural in M5 Ranch School.
M5 SHIBORI DYE One of my favorite things to do on the ranch during the summer is to experiment with SHIBORI DYE! I gather up a ton of white tea towels, tablecloths, sweatshirts… you name it! I dyed a few white Carhartt jackets last year and loved how they turned out. It’s best to do […]
M5 BACON At Five Marys, we exclusively offer uncured bacon (which hasn’t been treated with sodium nitrate), cut from the belly and side of the pig. Our bacon is hickory smoked, fatty, and flavorful.

Meet the M5 Dogs! Dixie I can always count on Dixie to be right behind, beside, or below me no matter where I go all day. She’s in the feed truck as soon as I crack that squeaky old Dodge door, she’s under my desk sleeping on a sheep pelt at the farm store. When […]

I grew up doing what some might consider the most unusual of horse […]

M5 Top 5 – Cocktail Edition At the end of a long day on the ranch, there’s nothing better than a five o’clock cocktail with Brian. Sometimes we’ll grab an ice-cold ‘chore beer’ to make the evening rounds. When we finally call it a day, I’ll juice some citrus and add bourbon, then shake it […]
2 oz good bourbon
2 oz meyer lemon juice
1 oz Cointreau or something sweet like honey syrup, maple syrup or simple syrup
*If you can’t find Meyer lemons, try mixing regular lemons and tangerines or cutie oranges!
Pour over ice and shake, sugar the rim of a cocktail glass, strain and pour - and ENJOY!
