I’m a farmer, butcher, chef, and poet who has worked on nearly all aspects of food for over a decade. I’m also a single mom, raising two boys in a world that worries and thrills me. And, I’m writing The Ethical Meat Handbook: A Complete Guide to Home Butchery, Charcuterie, and Cooking for the Conscious Omnivore. Above all, I am committed to real, good food, as a means to connect with people, animals, and plants, learn new skills, create intentionally, stay inspired, and experience deliciousness.
