Connecting Farms & Families In Central Ohio since 2010


Putting Culture Back in Agriculture

urban farmers

Harmonious Homestead is the effort of Rachel Tayse and collaborators to revive and expand small-scale sustainable farming. 

A hungry idealist, Rachel believes that nourishing food comes from restorative growing practices. She finds power in diversity, strength in following nature's lead, and beauty in wild edges. 

Rachel earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geological Sciences from The Ohio State University in 2002. Her early work included teaching science at elementary schools, directing the religious education program for a Unitarian Universalist church, blogging, and volunteering.

A passion for ecologically-sensitive nourishment led to Rachel's current work: coordinating the Begin Farming Program at the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association, operating an urban homestead, and collaborating on several modern agrarian projects. Her daughter Lillian tends chickens on the homestead, among other creative endeavors.
