16: Kate MacLean, Longest Acres Farm

Click to watch the video interview!

Kate and her husband Nick of Longest Acres Farm in Chelsea have a familiar farmer story. Tired of working in office jobs, they visited Kate’s farming cousin in the country and fell in love with the lifestyle of hard work, fresh air, and a direct connection with animals and the environment. They haven’t looked back since.

Join me for a wide-ranging conversation with Kate about farming and food, multi-generational living, and Kate’s renewed interest in creative writing.

You can find Kate’s imaginative farm stories in their Instagram feed, and everything farm-related, including upcoming butchery and cooking classes, at Longest Acres Farm.
