We are two resourceful, dorky, and totally awesome women embarking on an experiment in local eating. Starting on January 1st, 2013, we began a year of eating food that is grown, raised and foraged in Mendocino County, California. Why? Because it is possible. Because anything is possible. And because we want to inspire a new agricultural future by enjoying the abundance of this land, celebrating those who farm, inspiring new farmers and eaters, and building massive amounts of topsoil. We invite you to join us in this endeavor by eating with us, feeding us, and sending some love our way!
Eventually the pull got too strong and she ran away to be a farmer. After an OSU certificate program and a bunch of volunteering, and Master Gardener training, she worked on a 150 acre farm while managing a half acre homestead. She always wanted to come home someday, and when a job opening as farm manager of Noyo Food Forest came available, she made the leap, packed up the quail in a U-Haul and came home. Now she manages a 2 acre farm full of food and people. She grows produce, raises goats, chickens, ducks and quail, and provides a place for youth and community to be in the garden. She maintains a metal arts and wood turning studio, and her goal in the community is to feed everyone, make art, and build topsoil.
