Kellie Pettyjohn

Kellie Pettyjohn is owner/operator of The Wily Carrot, a small, organic vegetable farm and co-owner of the new Mancos Valley CSA.  Prior to farming, she dabbled in homeland security, international conservation and Antarctic janitorial services.  She has always been fascinated with the relationship between humans and the land.  After studying Anthropology and Journalism in college she had planned on traveling the world, collecting stories.  Now, she hopes to bring that curiosity about our connection to the land and our sense of place to The Big Fat Farm Show.
