Rachel comes to Mission Farm having spent most of her life in the tidal flats of the eastern shore of Maryland where the blue crabs and herons captivated her attention. That awe and fascination with the world led her to deeper questions about God, and eventually encouraged her to shape a life close to the land here in Vermont. Working alongside the land-community in Roxbury, she is engaging in regenerative agriculture and eco-spirituality with her husband, their dog Frodo, and their beloved milk cow Mocha.
