Ruth Chantry
Co-owner, Farmer - Common Good Farm

A native Nebraskan, Ruth Chantry & her husband have a highly diversified certified organic & certified Biodynamic small family farm in northern Lancaster County, Nebraska. Direct-to-consumer relationships, community context & CSA has been the farm's heartbeat for nearly 25 years. With the view of the farm as a whole organism, the striving is to create soil fertility within the farm & use diversity to create a whole farm organism. Some elements of the farm include Nebraska's oldest/longest-running CSA, a few hogs, a small grass-fed cattle herd, plant sale, wholesale, market, produce, tours & workshops. Ruth now wishes she had spent as much time on entomology as etymology, but so is the trajectory of life.
