Helene Patrick

Toad Hill Farm
Danville, OH

Helene lives in her own trailer on Toad Hill Farm, which belongs to her son, Tim. Helene is in her early nineties but she still goes to feed the chickens and collect the eggs everyday. If Helene had been able to go to college, she would have been a nutritionist, but her two brothers went before her so there was no more money for her to go. Helene said that she is interested in nutrition because her mother was interested in using only natural products before organics was a movement. Before I left Helene, she gave me a basket of organic chocolate peanut butter cookies.
