Ray grew up in a town of 1,000 where he worked on his uncle’s farm doing everything from baling hay to feeding hogs. These days, our gregarious president can usually be found on his bike, motorcycle, hiking mountains and canyons, or regaling those around him with stories of his numerous escapades. If you’re exhausted just reading this, so are we.
Head #girlboss of the team, Kim can school you on everything from how to market to your target audience to how to place a class of market steers. After more than a dozen years as an ag communicator, there’s no job too big for this FFA and 4-H alumna, but her sweet spot is in crafting creative ways to pique consumers' interest in agriculture.
Drew has the gift of gab and a real knack for making sausage balls. He grew up in rural Alabama and is a former 4-H and FFA member. Drew loves making connections with agribusiness industry leaders and promoting our work. When asked for a list of his favorite things, he included traveling the country, hiking and his amazing wife, Leah. Suck up.
Growing up on a farm in rural Tennessee, Jessy moved away from her small-town roots only to find herself editing rural lifestyle magazines. Now leading our content team, she realizes that ag is where her heart has been all along – as evidenced by her backyard garden – but only if she can live within a short ride from Nashville’s music and foodie scene.
Born and raised in the Nashville area, Jordan’s sales skills were impressive enough in high school to convince Taylor Swift to be his date to the Senior Snowball dance. He’s turned those attributes into a career managing our sales team and coming up with innovative pitches. This creature of habit eats macaroni and cheese at least once a day.
A rare Nashville native, Allison heads up our web team in managing digital projects big and small, from mobile apps to video production to site launches. This nature lover and true crime podcast enthusiast also adores her four cats and abhors foolishness, so don’t start with her. She claims to play the cello, but we’ll believe it when we see it.
Between wrangling her two young daughters and our designers, editors and photographers, Laura has her hands full. She ensures our creative work is top-notch, from the perfect plate for a food shoot to the perfect font on the cover. And as a Louisiana native, she can peel crawfish faster than you can.
Molly keeps us all in line, managing project schedules, workloads and deadlines. She enjoys cooking, paddle boarding, Pure Barre, being trained by her crazy dog and days when her hair behaves (it’s full of secrets). She dislikes selfies but luckily didn't work here the year we all got selfie sticks for Christmas.
Herb grew up on a farm just outside of Nashville and knows firsthand about losing farmland to urban developments, which fuels his passion for promoting the importance of agriculture. In his spare time, he enjoys playing with his grandson, hiking with his German Shepherd and working in the yard.
Amy is such a design whiz that we’re pretty sure she's using magic. Her creative touch can be seen in almost every one of our agribusiness magazines at any given time. In her spare time, she enjoys travel and yoga but advises against attempting downward-facing dog in your airplane seat.
Nathan lives by the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words. A proud Texan, he enjoys getting outdoors with his family, especially national parks, as well as woodworking and taking his wife out for a good old two-step.The son of a veterinarian, he’s used to being around animals – although this job might be the first where he’s had so many cows as models.
As a former Maryland Lamb & Wool Princess and Auburn University Miss College of Agriculture, Hannah knows ag and has the plastic tiaras to prove it, bringing farm expertise and a sense of humor to the table. She's an avid fan of the Rock, her dog TBone, velour leisure pants and slightly burnt popcorn.
Rachel creates and curates our content, making it pretty and oh-so Instagrammable. She spent five years in Spain but recently returned to her native Nashville. You’ll find her traveling (duh), eating Indian food or spending time with her dog. She doesn’t like chocolate ice cream, but we’ll forgive her since she is a cooking queen and loves learning about agriculture.
Jeff keeps us focused when life gets a little blurry. He’s flown all over the country shooting our magazines yet still spends his vacation time traveling the world, from Belize to Thailand (and that’s just last year). Jeff is basically royalty in our office and, according to his 23 & Me results, a descendant of King Louis XVI.
Kelly’s first foray into the ag world involved fish pedicures and donkey rides in Santorini. Now she spends her days talking to farmers and whipping our copy into shape. An avid reader with mean air hockey skills, she enjoys hanging with her dog, hosting game night, or working on her fast talking and even faster typing skills – she’s up to 94 words per minute.
Managing our ad production is no easy task, but Katie makes it look that way by keeping the process running smoothly and our valued advertisers happy. A city girl at heart, she has fond memories of hunting for arrowheads on her father’s Kentucky farm. Today, she still hunts for antiques – or the newest Nashville hot spot.
Imagine if Shaggy from Scooby Doo was focused enough to develop user-friendly websites and craft code for hours. Richard grew up a cowboy wannabe, hanging out on ranches in Texas and Arkansas. Now he herds the content team into approving wireframes in a timely manner (we’ll get to it, Richard!).
“Support” is no exaggeration when it comes to Courtney – our sales reps in the field rely on her as the point person back in the office, where she handles everything from media kits to mailings. Outside of work, she likes exploring Nashville, wine “tasting” and seeing movies that don’t star Nicolas Cage.
A fan of reading, sharks, candles and her two cats, Emmylou offers design expertise and a sunny attitude. She's enjoyed expanding her existing agricultural knowledge gleaned from exploring her grandparents' cattle farm. Outside of work, you may find her playing the ukulele or staying at an AirBnb in rural Norway.
Cara is an accomplished cook and has fully embraced Farm Flavor’s “live to eat, not eat to live” mindset. She’s a Pinterest pro and excels at Excel (seriously, this girl loves a spreadsheet) but fails at riding a bike without training wheels. If you look up “millennial” in the dictionary, it’s just a picture of Cara.
Alison organizes our thousands of photos and is also our Photoshop queen, keeping us and our photo subjects looking good. She has competed in multiple muddy obstacle races and enjoys spending time with her two daughters and two German shorthaired pointers, who we keep begging her to bring to work (sorry, kids, we’re talking about the dogs).
