Jenna Woginrich, Farm Writer

Name: Jenna Woginrich
Occupation: Web designer, writer, blogger, big dreamer
Place of Residence: Sandgate, VT

Background: Former urbanite, future shepherdess and current farm writer — Jenna Woginrich has big plans. Plans that include living a more self-sufficient life with dogs at her side and wi-fi in the barn. She drives an orange pickup and shares her Vermont cabin and gardens with working sled dogs, a small flock of sheep, a hilarious goat, a flock of gregarious chickens, two awkward geese, wooly angora rabbits, and a hive of bees. She’s also the author of Cold Antler Farm, a blog about her life as a beginner homesteader, and her book Made From Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life (Published by Storey), is available in bookstores now. Jenna’s writing can be also found on Huffington Post Green (where she also blogs).

And most importantly … she bakes a mean apple pie, so y’all watch out.

Current Projects and Other Fun Facts:

Outside of writing, she’s currently learning about the wooly and wild world of sheepdogs and shepherding. Her goal is to have a few ewes and a trialing Border Collie in the next few years (if not sooner!) and to someday make Cold Antler Farm her full-time job.
