Kaitie Adams

Kaitie Adams, one of EarthDance’s Assistant Farm Managers, is responsible for coordinating harvest shifts, managing wholesale accounts, caring for chickens, and assisting in all aspects of apprentice education. Kaitie is a Southern Illinois native whose love of local food and farming grew slowly with weekly trips to the farmer’s market and learning the importance of buying real food from real people. These passions culminated in a large-scale research project for which she received a Master’s Degree in Anthropology in 2015 from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Kaitie’s work explored the social life of seeds and mushroom cultures on small scale farms in Southern Illinois and the powerful relationships agriculture creates.
