Kate Helt

Dharma Farm
Gambier, OH

Kate owns organic Dharma Farm with her husband, Eric. The Helts auction goats, sell lamb direct, and fatten steers to be sold unfinished. After driving up the long driveway of the farm, I saw Kate’s beautiful pond and chicken coop, in front of their homestead. Kate loves all of her animals and spent a lot of time showing me each of them – from the chickens, to the goats, sheep, guard llamas, and barn cats. Kate named one of her llamas Bodhi, after the tree that Siddhartha Gautama sat under to reach enlightenment.
