Frances and Jeff Tacy

Franny's Farm


Raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Franny Tacy has spent many years learning by adventure. She has a graduate degree in education and taught school for six years. She worked in pharmaceuticals for more than a decade. Her nickname was the “hippie in high heels.” Eventually, she followed her dreams to the farm. She has attended, participated in, and taught at Organic Growers School for years (among many other farming conventions). Tacy has shared pieces of her journey on Homestead Hustle and on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS YouTube channel!
