If you’ve ever wondered what to do with broccoli raab, Chris and Kim Blanchard are the people to talk to. Of course, you’ll have to catch up with them first. The two run the 80-acre Rock Spring Farm in Decorah Iowa, while also dispensing advice on organic farming, cooking and eating through magazine articles, online forums and community outreach. Chris currently serves on the board of directors for the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service, a nonprofit organization committed to advancing organic agriculture, and since 2000, he’s coordinated presentations for the annual Organic Farming Conference in La Crosse, the largest organic meeting in North America. When Kim isn’t running circles around her farm, she’s doing it around cities—she’s completed two Twin Cities marathons.
