About Ash

Ash lives in rural Nova Scotia, Canada with her husband Daniel and their children Ellie and Anderson, where they raise pastured pigs and wagyu cattle. The winters are long and the summers are magic and you can often find her in the kitchen or curled up next to the wood stove during the winter months and milking the cow in the yard during the summer.  Her greatest passion is teaching others, and her greatest teachers are her children.
