Hello! Let me start out by saying I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Daiton and this blog is something I’ve been working on in my head for quite some time now.


Recently, I attended a GROW by FarmHer event in Ankeny at the FFA enrichment center. It was a conference of 250 young women in the field of agriculture. There were many enlightening speakers throughout the day but the one who really captivated my interest was Cristen from Food and Swine, who spoke about why it is so important to advocate for agriculture and how to advocate while doing what you love.

Later in the day, I attended a smaller session with a panel of well known agricultural bloggers. The ladies talked about how to take the plunge, which is what I was probably the most afraid of. They gave all the young FarmHers some really solid advice about what they do and how they connect with consumers. That was my “Aha!” moment. “If they can do it, I can do it,” I thought. So here I am, and a dash of daiton is born.

What am I going to write about? Excellent question. Probably everything. As a full time college student, I have a lot of interests that range from agriculture to makeup to healthy living. You’ll probably end up seeing a wide variety of topics on my blog, which is part of the reason I adopted the name, “a dash of daiton”. While I’d love to take the credit, I have my mother to thank for that wonderful name. Thanks, mom! 🙂

Let the adventures begin!
