Community herbalist and homesteader Stephinie Miner can be found most days hanging out with her free range kids, chasing chickens out of the garden, making soap, dyeing fiber, or experimenting in the kitchen. She runs a small online shop and attends local markets to sell her handcrafted herbal goods, blogs at Sweetbrier Farms, and dreams of building a house on the 29 acres of old farmland she and her husband just bought in northern New York.
