About Cat Wood
Cat is the manager of operations and marketing for The Machine Shed Restaurant. She is heavily involved in community outreach for the restaurant, which offers a family environment and comforting home-cooked meals to emulate the warmth and community of Iowa farms. In addition to working for The Machine Shed, Cat is a director at the Iowa Foundation for Agriculture Advancement.
Cat has teamed up with the Iowa Food & Family Project to help teach Iowans how food goes from the farm to their plate. She was instrumental in the “Talkin’ Farming at the Shed” initiative, which invited Iowa farmers to share their stories with restaurant patrons.
“As a large restaurant, it is an honor to be dedicated to the American farmer and help tie farming to food for our guests,” she says.
