Created and founded by Mary Blackmon, Farm Star Living is the first of its kind – a new lifestyle brand celebrating both the lives of real farmers and the farming lifestyle in general so that people everywhere can better understand, appreciate and support farmers and the world of farming.
Mary is a 3rd generation farmer from Arkansas, who left her hometown to pursue college and a career in advertising sales and marketing in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York City. She worked for publishing houses and internet companies (Wired, Walt Disney Internet Group). In NYC in 2002, she founded Spa-Addicts.com, the first national discount site for the spa & wellness industry. She grew it into a multi-million dollar business and a leader in the industry, and attracted hundreds of thousands of women as well as sponsors.
In 2008, however, she learned most of her family farm bordering Ark / LA would be sold. Not wanting to lose the family heritage and farmland her family before her had so cherished, Mary, along with the support of her brother Douglas, was adamant to preserve and keep the remaining farmland. She then began making changes in her life so that she could move from Los Angeles back South in order to keep, operate and run the farm. She bought back her grandparents house and renovated it, and discovered that “saving the family farm” had changed her life forever – and for the better. Today she admits that she is happier than ever & inspired, loving the farming business and now launching Farm Star Living, which she felt compelled to create for the good of farming and the people she has met along her new path. She hopes that Farm Star Living will provide farmers the respect, acknowledgment and support they so deserve and attract new farmers as well as support the current ones.

Emily-Rose's Day at the Farm, is a delightful children's animal-themed pictorial book that introduces young readers to the concepts of listening and learning through a charming story containing farm chores and farm animals. Ms Simone Da Costa has written a wonderful interactive teaching resource for educators, libraries, and parents to utilize. The story plot allows children to gain knowledge of all the different animals that exist on a farm, what they eat, and their behaviors.
Emily-Rose finally gets to feed the animals on her Grammy's farm, but Emily-Rose finds that it is not as fun as she thinks it is.
This week, pastor and author, Hughey Reynolds joins Scott to talk about his new book "The Land That Calls Me Home". The book investigates the disappearance of small-scale farms from rural America and casts a vision for the church to lead in their recovery.
