...helping women landowners learn more about managing, conserving and enjoying the land they love.


Chicks on the Farm are Pat Larr and Betty Joubert,  along with family, friends and partners.

Betty Joubert

Betty is our resident Cajun chick, hailing from a small, rural community in Southwestern Louisiana. Her first trip to the farm was in 1992, and she's been the Best All-Around Farm Hand ever since. 

She retired (to go fishing! and) to help manage the farm in 2008,  after a distinguished 30-plus-year career with the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service.   She worked in several states including Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico and Illinois where she assisted in getting conservation on the land by directing public information, education, media and public relations activities of the agency. 

 Pat Larr

Pat, a native of Lebanon, IN, is a retired District Conservationist and full-time farm operator on the 257-acre farm she has owned and managed since 1988.

She began her career with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service in 1976, following graduation from Purdue University. She retired in 2009, after many years of working with local soil and water conservation districts to provide technical assistance to hundreds of private landowners to help them conserve and protect their soil, water, forests, and wildlife.
