I am a farmer, a cook and a photographer. I started working with food when I was 18, and I haven’t stopped since. I think that pomegranates are beautiful, and chili peppers, and peas fresh from the garden. I believe in self-reliance, and I try to grow, cook, preserve, craft, forage, hunt, build, and create as much as I can. I have no formal training in any of this. You don’t need any either.
My husband and I run Black Dog Farm in the beautiful hills of Northern California, where we grow specialty produce and flowers. You can find me at the farmers market with produce, fresh flower bouquets, and a whole rainbow of jams, jellies and preserves.
