About me

Gender Female
Industry Agriculture
Occupation Contrary Farmer and renianssance woman
Location Eaton, Ohio, United States
Introduction I am a woman in my late 40's who's reason for living is to grow organic food and revive local foodsheds. I was raised by bleeding heart, liberal intellectuals in a small SW Ohio College town. In my life I have been a chef, a horse groom and trainer, an archaeologist, a student, an artist and for the past 12 years a small, contrary, sustainable farmer and farmers market manager. You might call me a regular renaissance woman.
