Mary Dougherty

After a sailing trip to Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, Mary Dougherty transplanted her family of seven (plus four dogs) to Bayfield. She opened and co-ran Good Thyme Restaurant, recognized as one of the top dining experiences in northern Wisconsin, for four years. She went on to create the Cookery Maven blog and Words for Water, a photography project about the importance of fresh water. Founder of the nonprofit Farms Not Factories, she now serves on the board and is a rabble rouser for the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project. She was voted Wisconsin’s 2016 Progressive Leader of the Year. You can find Mary most mornings at the beach with her dogs and most nights in her kitchen cooking for family and friends.
