As a teen, she dedicated herself to learning a broad range of agricultural skills, working for a dairy farm, in diversified vegetable production, and for a cut flower grower, among other jobs. Ellie came to FGF through the WWOOF program, and it wasn’t long before she was running her own independent farm project as a pilot Incubee. With her tireless work ethic, passion for farming, and straightforward communication style, Ellie is an inspiring and effective Head Farmer at FGF. As UESF Beginning Farmer Resource Coordinator, she’ll be a tremendous role model and source of support and for farmers who aspire to launch sustainable agricultural enterprises.
