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.
I run Black Dog Farm in the beautiful hills of Northern California, where we grow specialty produce and flowers. My boyfriend and I have 200 lovely chickens, 10 guinea hens, a cat, and three sweet black dogs. You can find me at the farmers market with produce, bouquets, organic eggs, and a whole rainbow of jams, jellies and preserves.
