Steven Bailey

Steven Bailey, a.k.a. "The Korean Farmer," was raised by a mother from the rice fields of South Korea and a father who grew up on a North Carolina tobacco farm. A farmer and personal chef, Steven has been trained by his taste buds and unique cultural heritage rooted in food and farming.  Steven attended Baylor University in Waco, TX, where he began cooking and baking and was probably the only guy in his fraternity to own a Kitchen Aid Mixer. Right out of college and living in Dallas, Steven started a missions travel company called 963 Missions and a fair-wage coffee company before founding Urban Acres, an organic produce co-op, market, and urban farm, in 2009. Since moving to Tennessee with his family in 2015, he finally understands what his wife, Christine, has been saying all these years - it's a place like no other.
