Scottie Jones: Country Grit: A Farmoir of Finding Purpose and Love

Thursday, Sept. 13th | 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. | Main Meeting Room |

Join Alsea resident Scottie Jones, co-owner of Leaping Lamb Farm and author of Country Grit: A Farmoir of Finding Purpose and Love, as she recounts her transition from desert urbanite to sheep farmer in the green hills of the Coast Range at age 50. It was not a smooth transition and her “farmoir” is as much a testament to creative solutions as it is a warning that the farming life is not for everyone. Scottie will also lead a conversation about modern challenges to small farms including community, sustainability, and creative diversification strategies.
