The Journey and Mission

I started as a business exec and health-conscious gardener/DIY-er till I was busted for having illegal backyard chickens in suburbia. With my husband and kids along for the ride, we went all-in, starting our own family farm in Central Ohio in 2013.
During the pandemic, my calling became crystal clear. I quit corporate life for full time farming. It's been a long journey of faith to get here. I am continuously amazed to see God's hand in synchronicities I've experienced with others and events. 

My mission: building and growing resilient local food supply networks of the future - one new regenerative farmer and farm/ranch at a time.

I do public outreach through workshops and public speaking. I entertain, educate and encourage the next generation of successful regenerative farmers and ranchers, writing articles, doing appearances, and hosting the Fair Hill Farmstead Life Podcast.  

I work with commercial clients on regenerative ag projects such as farm startups, designing the central farms in agrihoods, and conventional farm reclamations. Agrihoods and master planned communities of farmsteads in particular offer an exciting path forward for society. I envision a future where communities can be more resilient, cultivating robust local economies, and reconnecting with food through participating in the process of growing and raising it.

For new and aspiring farmers, I offer mentorship and support needed thru the process of making this huge life change. Again and again I've been told that the concrete actions of skill acquisition, growing one's own food, and creating a resilient, abundant life has resulted in far superior quality of life for these families.

It's deeply rewarding to see this happen!

 

I have been blessed with stellar clients of like mindset and many of the same faith. Today I help them to be successful right out of the gate. 

Over the years I've come to understand that reaching proficiency in farming takes time, yet it can happen no matter the starting point. Through planned steady progress, we have come to keep hair sheep, dairy goats, heritage turkeys and heritage poultry. We sell designer daylilies, flowers, herbs, produce, fruit, raw goat milk shampoo bars, soaps, and pasture raised meats and eggs and top quality breeding stock. Everything is grown, raised, or produced with earth stewardship in mind for future generations using regenerative soil-building methods, compost, and organic gardening practices.

I'll leave you with this: If you want to homestead, you can do that wherever you live. If you ever wanted to farm, do it. Now is the time, no matter your age.

The sustainable food system of tomorrow needs your participation today.
