Debby Greenlaw traded her suburban home for a farmhouse in the country; replaced her skirts and lab coat with T-shirt dresses and comfortable work shoes; and happily shovels goat poop at the crack of dawn rather than sitting in rush hour traffic.
Along with her best friend and husband Pete, Debby bought and subsequently restored a 14.5 acre farm in South Carolina. They share Green Pastures Farm with a cadre of dairy goats, chickens, a mini donkey, a barn cat, and a playful pup. Over the past decade, Debby has taught herself skills that were once common to her ancestors, from delivering baby animals to spinning fiber and weaving fabric. Debby shares the skills learned, adventures experienced, and insights gleaned through teaching, writing, and her blog Flora & Fiber. Debby is also the author of Krokbragd Patterns.
