On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Laura Jane Boville.

Laura Jane is a teacher turned farmer who loves to share her love of gardening, preserving and cooking with everyone!

After years of searching, Laura Jane, her husband, and four kids moved to their property just north of Winnipeg in 2019. Bovilles Barnyard grew into a business out of their own desire to be more connected to their food and teach others how to do the same.
