About The Wannabe Farmer

After almost 3 years of New York City living, I decided to turn my world upside down. I recently moved to a farm in rural Pennsylvania to learn how to grow & raise food that is healthy for humans and the planet.

Farming was never part of my five-year plan. Or my ten-year plan. Or any plan for that matter. Though I had farming in my blood, I figured my family’s agricultural heritage would end with my grandparents. I was a sorority girl and captain of a nationally-ranked collegiate mock trial team. High heels and pearls were my daily uniform. I had a plan. It involved law school, a fancy office near Capitol Hill, and a closet full of Stuart Weitzmans.

But the best laid plans of mice and men… Life happened. Plans changed. I never made it to law school, but somehow found myself working at a law firm in NYC passing the days dreaming of wide open spaces. I’ve always been up for an adventure and eventually I decided to throw caution to the wind and to try to make those dreams a reality.

I’m glad you stopped by and hope you’ll join me on this crazy, awesome adventure they call “life.”

Feel free to drop me a note!

  1. Hi Little Miss Farm Girl,
    Here’s Aunt Jean wishing you well in your new endeavor. You can’t miss becoming a successful farmer with your family heritage.

  2. Are you in hill country or flat country? I’ve been to northern PA a lot and southern PA about 4 times. See any Amish? Me and my mom were going to hang out on a farm B&B in Lancaster county.

    • We are in the Piedmont area which is somewhere between hills and flat. It’s more gently sloping hills than real ones, but it certainly isn’t flat like Iowa. And, yes, the farm is smack dab in the middle of Amish country!
