Some of you may have noticed that we recently passed 1000 “Likes” on Facebook. That, and increased traffic on our Instagram account, can be in part attributed to the efforts of INWFN volunteer Emily Black.
Emily came to the INWFN out of a desire to find others who share her interest in farming. Recently, in addition to helping with our social media (including the creation of our new Pinterest account!), she joined a team of volunteers who are organizing our biggest fundraiser of the year – “An Autumn Affaire” (more info coming soon).
By day, Emily works in the sales and marketing department at Chief Architect Software. She also is a farmer! Originally from Montana, Emily grew up on a cattle ranch. She hated cows and vowed to have nothing to do with them when she grew up. Destiny, however, had other plans in mind.
Initially, she had a simple vegetable garden. Gradually, over the years, the garden grew and grew. Spurred by a desire to improve her diet and to get more physical exercise, she and her husband invested in some land and established Lone Mountain Farms in Athol, ID. Together, they grow veggies and hops that they distribute through LINC Foods. Their vision is to improve community nutrition and the local economy by raising public awareness about farming, and to inspire other young farmers.
We are thrilled to have Emily’s marketing talents contributing to our efforts. Thank you Emily!!!
