Christine Marie Bailey
Christine Marie Bailey is a grateful farmer, writer, and dreamer. A former music industry gal turned social entrepreneur turned sustainable produce and flower farmer, Christine is growing deep roots with her chef husband on their seventeen-acre Kindred Farm in Santa Fe, Tennessee.
Christine grew up an Italian-American Jersey girl before leaving the northeast for college. She attended Belmont University in Nashville and worked in the Christian music industry for several years on tour promotions, new album releases, and films. After marrying Steven and moving to Dallas, she helped found an Africa relief non-profit called Mocha Club where she worked for five years as Membership Director. In 2009, she and Steven started Urban Acres, an organic produce co-op, market, and urban farm in Dallas.
In 2015, she moved back to Tennessee with her family to start Kindred Farm, where they raise sustainable produce and gather the community around long tables under the stars several times a year at unique farm-to-table events called Kindred Dinners.
Christine is passionate about homeschooling her two wild and free daughters and will always say yes to waterfall-chasing, campfire-sitting, and eating ice cream on the roof under a country sky. She shares adventures and inspiration on her website, ChristineMarieBailey.com.
