About Kate

Local Foods Development Coordinator for

Kate grew up on goat milk and goat milking in the rural northern Arizona town of Cornville. Raising goats helped her realize her passions for ecosystems, local food, and her community. Now, Kate loves dehydrating her favorite locally grown foods and taking them backpacking!
