Putting Culture Back in Agriculture
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 projects: co-owning and operating Foraged & Sown organic farm, non-profit project management, writing, and food and garden education.
Lil, Rachel's twelve-year-old unschooled daughter, cats Nightshade and Opal, a flock of backyard chickens, and friends and family fill Harmonious Homestead with earthy wonder. Read stories about agrarian life, from-scratch recipes, and missives about the state of agriculture in the the Words section.
