Logan Hailey has devoted her life to growing nutritious food while preserving and enhancing the soil, water, air, and biodiversity of our planet for generations to come. Within the next few years, she hopes to start a small-scale, highly biodiverse farm that utilizes clean renewable energy, permaculture design, and ecological methods to produce certified organic vegetables, fruit, honey, and free-range eggs. Hailey is currently gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve this goal, including getting her B.S. in Soil Science and Ecological Horticulture Production from Oregon State University as well as farm experience throughout the country. When she is not farming, she enjoys seed saving, foraging, mushroom hunting, hiking, traveling, reading, writing for the Country Grind Quarterly (a rural farm punk magazine), playing banjo, working on her school bus conversion, and exploring the wilderness with her inspiring life partner and their three wonderful dogs. They are currently living and farming in northern Montana. You can follow her adventures in organic farming and beyond at www.farmer-v.com.

Congratulations Logan!
