About the Farmer
Before co-founding Pie Ranch in 2003, Jered worked with various organizations in California that share a common goal of influencing the way people relate to themselves, each other and the land around them through the development of healthy, local and just food systems. Jered leads the organization's regional advocacy efforts, joins in farm operations, and works with the Board of Directors to raise the necessary support to fulfill the mission and infrastructure improvements of Pie Ranch. Jered lives on the farm with his partner Nancy and their children, Lucas & Rosa and loves to surf when time allows.
Nancy is a broadly experienced sustainable food systems farmer, advocate, educator, and leader. Previous to co-founding Pie Ranch in 2003, Nancy worked on a number of farms abroad and throughout the United States, eventually landing at UC Santa Cruz's Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS) where she farmed and taught for over a decade. Nancy is passionate about linking justice with food and farming efforts, leads the organization in strategic planning, and oversees educational programs and farm production. Nancy lives at Pie Ranch with Jered and their children, Rosa and Lucas. She also enjoys playing the fiddle at the monthly barn dance with the band, The County Line Pickers.
