In this week’s podcast episode, we’re sitting down with Mary Heffernan of Five Marys Farms. We met up at their M5 Burgerhouse in Fort Jones, California (pop. 839) to talk about all things Five Marys. Like, how she first discovered her love for small business, why she loves the rural life, the power of Instagram, and so much more. Mary is an entrepreneur at heart and you’ll love hearing how she and her family have built Five Marys from the ground up.

Mary’s can-do approach to marketing and branding and tackling every part of their business is so impressive. And that’s why we love so much that she is sharing what she’s learned through her new Small Business from Scratch Workshop. Enrollment for her eCourse actually starts next week! So be sure to go check out the Five Marys website for more information on that. And while you’re there, you can also check out the ways that you can experience Fort Jones and the ranch for yourself.

So many of our followers feel like they are part of our story and they see what we’re doing every day. And I think I have a bit of a unique perspective on it because I’m new to ranching. Instagram has really helped us grow our business.

I think so many people idealize moving to rural America or living a homesteader life or living on a ranch or a farm. And it should be idealized because it is awesome. But you have to understand that it is a lot of work!

I have been surprised that we could build a business from a small town. I think that was one of my biggest concerns moving rurally was, I’m moving from the land of opportunity to a town of 600 people, how am I going to build a business?
