Welcome to Brown Dog Farm. This is the place where Rachel Catlett and Ed Hicks call home and where we work, play and create things with our hands. I am Rachel, grass farmer, painter, print maker, gardener, mom, cook, shepherd, horse wrangler and animal lover. You can find out more about me and my work in the Brown Dog Studio.  I am married to Ed, carpenter, father, builder, wood worker, artist, lover of brown dogs, fixer of all things mechanical, music man, and brew-master. He can be found in the  Brown Dog Workshop.

Sometimes life works in strange ways to bring you what your heart has always longed for. This is that place for us. We are starting out on a great adventure of fixing up an old house and barns and learning to be good stewards of this planet through regenerative farming practices. Our farm is named after our brown dogs Ryder and Raleigh. Raleigh's portrait graces our farm sign and our business name. Like them, we’re not fancy, but we’re learning how to be good farmers, creating a beautiful place for those we love and care for and taking time to make things with our hands to share them with others.

Come on in. Check out our Farm blog, see what we do and linger awhile...



“Farmers must tend farms that they know and love, farms small enough to know and love, using tools and methods they know and love, in the company of neighbors they know and love.”

— Wendell Berry
