Faculty: Tarrah Young
Tarrah Young runs Green Being Farm in Neustadt, ON with her husband Nathan Carey. They run a winter CSA, supplying their members with high quality storage crops and hardy greens along with a healthy dose of food and farm education.
They also raise and direct market pastured pork, poultry, grass-fed lamb, beef and eggs, with a focus on raising animals in a way that does not compromise their dignity or that of the environment.
Tarrah holds a degree in Environmental Biology from the University of Guelph, and acts an instructor for FarmStart, where she teaches both aspiring and existing farmers. She is a regular presenter and public speaker at farm forums and also runs seminars for consumers designed to help them better understand farming and food systems. She developed the first 'incubaternship', a program that allows aspiring farmers to complete an internship at Green Being while incubating their own farm business.
