Lisa Rickard

Fox Hollow Farm
Fredericktown, OH

Lisa, her husband, Bruce, two children, Hannah and Jessie, and three dogs, Grommet, Grace, and Wendy, run Fox Hollow Farm. Lisa does most of the direct marketing of the food at the farm, however that does not stop her from spending afternoons feeding the sheep. The Rickards have almost 800 sheep and I was told that they are one of the biggest producers of organically raised lamb east of the Mississippi. Bruce and Lisa met while working for AT&T and decided that they had to get away from the cubicle lifestyle. Lisa originally wanted to spend her time fixing and selling old houses, but realized that a connection to nature was more fulfilling.
