Meet Your Farmers

Full Cellar Farm was started in 2014 by Emily Cooper. Emily had been working for other farms in Oregon since 2008, and had developed a special love for CSA because of its opportunities to form long-lasting bonds with members. Emily feels that farming is the perfect balance between art and science, and she loves that she never stops learning. She feels incredibly fortunate to be farming at Headwaters Incubator Program, where she shares space, equipment, and ideas with farmers from 13 other small, sustainable farms. In addition to farming, Emily loves cooking and preserving food (though these activities sometimes get sidelined during the busy farm season) and she always has at least one book--preferably fiction--and several magazines on her nightstand.
 
Kelly Peters started working at the farm in April, after traveling and studying permaculture and sustainable living for two years overseas. She was primarily in Australia and New Zealand, but also studied in Laos and Thailand. She has always loved growing and gardening and fully believes in the organic and sustainable food movement. Her ultimate goal is to grow healthy food that improves our soil and earth. She also wants to design abundant properties where people can grow their own healthy food and support a healthy ecology at home. Eventually she would like to start her own project that uses home grown, organic food and fermentation to provide delicious and healthy options to the local community at an affordable price. She looks forward to learning hands-on the intricacies of the CSA program and is excited to help provide members with healthy, delicious produce. She also LOVES cooking and will be doing lots of experimenting this season.
