FarmHer Feature: Jennie Smith
Published on Sat, 04/01/2017 - 8:30am
Meet Jennie Smith, a FarmHer balancing her own tomato farm, Butcher Crick, and a full-time role as a sales professional. Jennie grew up in a family of farmers and started her own small farm, specializing in heirloom tomatoes, a number of years ago after working in the food service industry and forming a deeper connection with her ag roots.
While the farm and the tomatoes are still very much front and center in Jennie’s world, her role in agriculture has now expanded as she is a Sales Manager for Kemin Industries, where she travels the world, helping growers find solutions to their pest and plant problems. She balances the love of her role in corporate agriculture with the love of her little locally-focused farm—a business that she started and has grown with a lot of love and hard work.
