Farm Hands

Rachel Beyer is a consultant to the IU Campus Farm and teaches the course SPH O-343, Fundamentals of Sustainable Agriculture. She got her start as a vegetable grower at the Michigan State University Student Farm in 2009 and has since managed a variety of educational, ecologically based vegetable farms around the Midwest, including Stranger’s Hill Organics, Tilian Farm Development Center, DeLano Farms at the Kalamazoo Nature Center, and the Purdue University Student Farm. Rachel is originally from Bloomington and moved back home in 2016 to start her own small farm on family land in rural Monroe County. When she is not busy in the field, she and her husband enjoy dancing in the kitchen, eating good food, and going for walks in the woods with their two pups, Rooster and Taloola.
