Billie Lambdin - Chef +
Visionary, educator and program development professional working to heal the planet by creating programs on the local level that support sustainable connections for the greater community.
My professional background experience has been in networking to develop, design and integrate diverse learning opportunities. A focus on creating sustainable systems; agriculture, environmental, education, health care and social justice through skill sharing and community events that enhance the well-being of mind, body and spirit.
As a homeschooling mom- my current position in life finds me focusing mostly on our own small permaculture homestead in Unity NH, where we raise animals, gardens and herbs to sustain our family. These labors of love, combined with my past professional experience made a perfect fit when I saw D Acres was looking for a chef for Farm to Table meals. I have a passion for cooking and creating connections with folks about where their food comes from. The way we farm & eat is a revolutionary act!
Being able to blend these two parts of myself into the community at D Acres has been a wonderful opportunity and I look forward to working with our farmers to bring even more of our food to your table this year!
JB Riffle- Farmer, Educator, and Activist - JB grew up in rural Clinton, NY. He has always loved being active and outdoors so farming was always an obvious lifestyle choice, even if he didn't know it. He attended Hamilton College and the Sposato Graduate School of Education where he received degrees in Government and Effective Teaching, respectively. For a while he taught elementary school in Boston and New York City until he was bitten by the environmental activism bug and decided to apprentice on an organic vegetable farm and join Extinction Rebellion. JB seeks to grow delicious vegetables, be in community with others, and upend the dominant culture. He finds respite from those activities by biking and reading. He looks forward to putting his hands in the dirt with you!
