Molly owns and operates Presque Isle Farm with her husband Dion in northern Michigan. In 2014, they transformed the family’s hobby farm into a thriving market organic vegetable business and are now supplying produce to NE Michigan restaurants, farmers markets, schools, and groceries. Molly’s background reflects her ardor for food, education, and the outdoors. She worked as an Outdoor Living Skills Program Director for a youth camp for two seasons and then went on to serve in Togo, West Africa with the Peace Corps as an Education Development Coordinator. Upon her return to the states, Molly moved to Montana to herd and lamb 1500+ sheep for a family ranch for a season. Following her stint as a shepherd, she became a manager at a health food store and educate customers and employees on organic standards and nutrition and became infatuated with supporting and building healthy communities through food choices and education. Molly went on to teach high school for several years in New Orleans, often centering her curriculum around food, the food system, and its impact on her students’ lives and the world at large. Molly and her husband then returned to his family farm in Posen to become the new stewards of a Centennial Farm and invigorate the thriving food network of the northeastern portion of the mitten. Molly also spends her time writing about and marketing local food systems with Taste the Local Difference as their NE Local Food Coordinator.
