Fair Hill Farmstead Life

Fair Hill Farmstead Life

Judith Farrell Horvath started as a business exec and weekend-warrior homesteader till she was busted for having illegal backyard chickens in suburbia. With her husband and kids along for the ride, they went all-in, starting their own family farm in Central Ohio. Her mission: building and growing resilient local food supply networks of the future - one new regenerative farmer and farm/ranch at a time. Today, through workshops, consulting and public speaking, Judith showcases stories of success and struggle to encourage a new generation of regenerative farmers and entrepreneurs in adjacent areas of earth-friendly agriculture. Resilience, gratitude, community, and ecological regeneration are the guiding principles at Fair Hill Farm, since 2013. http://www.fairhillfarm.com
