About the author

Author and editor emeritus

Rachel's interest in sustainable agriculture and grazing has deep roots in the soil. She's been following that passion around the world, working on an ancient Nabatean farm in the Negev, and with farmers in West Africa's Niger. After returning to the US, Rachel received her M.S. and Ph.D. in agronomy and soil science from the University of Maryland. For her doctoral research, Rachel spent 3 years working with Maryland dairy farmers using management intensive grazing. She then began her work with grass farmers, a source of joy and a journey of discovery.

    Do you have any listings in Washington state or northern Oregon? We are looking to buy a 100 plus working farm to raise sheep, pastured beef and pastured chickens. My family has renovated and farmed a 5 acre parcel for 15 years with the goal of building tilth and water lens while learning to holistically manage (or be managed by) a small milk goat/sheep herd and chicken flocks. My daughter is currently studying Ag Science at Cornell University and is interested in adding grass fed beef farming/ranching with us after her masters. Ideally we could find land with developed infrastructure (fences, barns, water, etc.) and a smallish house. We would like to buy with cash over 5-10 years. And yes, leaving a lovingly built farm to strangers makes it difficult to think of moving on!
