THE GUARDIAN. By Sarah McColl
Kriss Marion credits the guidance she received from fellow Soil Sisters for the success of her farmstay, comprising two guest rooms and this 1968 Holiday Rambler Trav’ler camper. In 2015, the entrepreneur established the Blanchardville Main Street Farmers Market, where she sells approximately 100 varieties of heirloom vegetables; hand-spun and hand-dyed skeins of wool; and meat from her pastured cows, pigs and lambs. As if all that doesn’t sound exhausting enough, Marion plans to run for the state senate this fall. Nearby, an ancient Farmall (right) is more outdoor sculpture than working tool.
