Hi all. My name is Tiffany, and I am stoked to be sharing my knowledge and passion with the world. I am a farmer, graduate with a BS of Science in Sustainability, and an avid reader.
My journey in living a sustainable lifestyle peeled open about seven years ago when I took an English course my first year of college. The entire semester we had to read and write about perspective problems in society, like social media, technology, fossil fuels, and food. The food one really sparked something in me. The next semester, I volunteered as a note-taker for a lower level English class. In that one, the entire semester was focused on the food industry. That spark in me really began to spew.
While before these experiences I had heard about factory farms, the entire reality of them never really struck through to me. I loved, and still love, meat. But, our meat does not have to be produced and processed the way our government and the industry seems “necessary”. A massive goal in my lifetime is to eradicate CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations). My hope is that the people I reach will aid me in this goal.
A few months later, one of my coworkers – who I now consider a spiritual guide in my life – commented on my acne. She alluded to the idea that the craters on my face could be from eating processed meat. The next week, she brought me a book titled Skinny Bitch. I was on the very last page of the book when I called my boyfriend sobbing to him that I would never eat meat again. The next day, I went vegan – cold turkey. My dedication for food and the planet quickly became my life’s purpose.
A few years later, after much more education and experience on land and climate management, I’m no longer vegan. But, I still believe, and have an overwhelming desire to share, that the food we grow and eat is vital to the survival of human existence – both in the present and in the long-term future. We have SO much power. I whole-heartedly believe that with food we can and will overcome the cumbersome threats to humanity.
Now that that little debrief is over… In this blog, you can expect plenty of reviews and briefs of my recent reads. These will mainly be regarding regenerative farming, homesteading, the magic behind nature, sustainable lifestyles, and soil. You will also find studies and research on all things sustainability, from agrivoltaics to cows, and from nuclear to pollinators and more.
I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I love writing! If you ever want any information on a specific topic, or just to chat, please reach out!
All the best for now.
