- coffee should be a food group
- every day should be a celebration
- farm to table is not a fad, it’s simply our way of life
- our pets are family
- we should all be stewards of the earth
- and to move forward, we often have to take a step back!

Barb Webb, Owner/Editor
Barb Webb is a sustainable living expert nesting in Appalachian Kentucky. When she’s not chasing chickens around the farm or engaging in mock Jedi battles, she’s writing about country living and artisan culture.
Born under the earth sign, Taurus, she arrived in the world ready to start nurturing, digging and planting! She believes Irish cuisine is seriously undervalued and that if we simply open our minds and hearts to listen, the universe is an excellent guide.
An award-winning author, with a diverse publishing background ranging from curriculum design to social media, Barb has been featured in magazines such as Woman’s World, Country Woman, Redbook, MSN Money, Women’s Day, and Taste of Home Simple & Delicious.
Barb Webb is also the Owner/Editor of the popular blog RuralMom.com and author website SustainableChick.com. She’s also columnist for CraveLocal.com and Fix.com, blog partner with TheDailyMeal.com, Taste of Home blogger and Better Homes and Gardens Pinterest Pro.
Her husband, three children, new grandchild and all the chickens in the coop indulge her quirks, love of all things green and desire to help others.
