Meet the Farmer
Paige Smith grew up in Coffee County Georgia where her father raised goats, pigs, and backyard chickens and her grandfather had six commercial chicken houses. Her first ever job—at five years old—was “naming the biddies.”
She fell in love with animals at a young age, but never intended to farm.
When she was 15 her mother developed a life-altering autoimmune disease that crippled her for a time.
Paige began researching the causes of autoimmune disease which led her down the rabbit hole of America’s broken food system and the effect it’s having on our health.
When she saw how much good quality, properly raised food had such a positive impact on her mother’s health, as well as the environment she knew she wanted to be a farmer one day.
Since then, she’s worked on farms in New England where she helped produce grassfed, raw dairy, pastured poultry, forested pork, and grassfed beef.
