About the Author
Jodi Cronauer lives with her husband, Dave, and their three sons, Hunter, Timber, and Ryder on their beautiful farm in northern Wisconsin. She and Dave started their own Chiropractic office in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania and ran a successful business for fourteen years. Their education as Doctors of Chiropractic taught them the importance of eating quality foods that are not only filled with the nutrition your body needs, but also that are raised without any chemical substances or nontherapeutic antibiotics. In 2015, they retired from Chiropractic to concentrate solely on their farm. They moved from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin and raise American Bison, Idaho Pasture Pigs, and Kunekune Pigs. Jodi’s favorite part of the farm is her Gypsy Vanner Horses, which she breeds and trains. Some of her favorite pastimes are watching their son’s play sports, camping, fishing, and horseback riding. Family is the most important thing to Cronauer, and she hopes everyone has the opportunity to do what they love in life!
