I graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Accounting and received my MBA from UNI, with an emphasis in Marketing. Both of those are helping me immensely with my business today.

That Iowa Girl was "born" March 1, 2010, with the idea of helping smaller companies that made delicious food get their products to the stores, so others could enjoy them as well. I am so proud of what our state produces! We have some of the best cooks right here in the Midwest.

In May 2013, TIG opened an outlet store in Clarion. It has always been my dream to share these Iowa goodies with local people on a more personal level. I love finding new "treasures" and bringing them to my store.

Now, as I write this in December 2015...TIG distributes to over 300 grocery stores, including HyVees and Fareways in Iowa and the contiguous states. 

Of course, I cannot forget some stores that are near and dear to my heart because they gave me a chance when I was starting to deliver...Barn Happy in Cedar Falls, Hansen's Dairy in Waterloo/Cedar Falls, and Picket Fence in Woodward.

If you have a product that you think is worth sharing, please give me a call or stop by and see me at That Iowa Girl Outlet store in Clarion. 

Hello. My name is Colette,

and I am That Iowa Girl

Thank you for visiting my website. I grew up on a farm in north central Iowa by the little town of Dougherty. I have wonderful memories of big gardens, apple orchards, raspberry bushes, and of course chickens and cows.

I am the youngest of 5 children so having big meals with fresh, hormone-free, antibiotic-free food was just the norm. Mom and Dad taught us a work ethic that I am proud to have today (but I sure didn't like walking beans, picking up rocks or butchering chickens back then).


That Iowa Girl is a distributor of local Iowa made products. We service nearly 30 different vendors in the state.  We deliver to over 300 stores in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Kansas and Minnesota.  We do not charge a delivery fee to bring these great Iowa products to these locations.  

All we require is a $100 minimum order.  We feel very proud to help out these Iowa folks making amazing quality products by getting them out to the local consumers.  Iowa is a fantastic state!  

What a great way to support and grow our local economy.
