Christine Bailey

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. She then helped start an Africa relief non-profit called Mocha Club where she loved working for five years before she and her husband, Steven, started Urban Acres, an organic produce co-op, market, and urban farm, in Dallas in 2009. She's always wanted to return to Tennessee which feels like home, and she finally got her dream when she and her family moved back in 2015. Of all the things she ever thought she'd be, a farmer was never one of them. But to her surprise, she's found her true self while digging her hands into the soil of Kindred Farm. She also home educates two wild and free daughters and fosters her creativity through art, photography, writing, and chasing as many Tennessee waterfalls as possible.
