Christine Laymon

The Farm on Kenyon Road
Gambier, OH

Growing up in Fredericktown, Christine always knew that she wanted to attend Kenyon College. Christine graduated from Kenyon in 2001, majoring in American Rural Studies and continuing at Ohio State University in Rural Sociology. She met her husband, Jay, through 4-H when they were ten years old. Jay owns a tree service company and works as a fire fighter in Mount Vernon. The Laymons  have four children, Will, Grace, Autumn, and Wyatt. Christine told me that the primary purpose of the farm is to feed her family independently and sustainably.
