Jamie Stoneham – Founder
After earning a BS in graphic design from the University of Cincinnati, living and teaching on organic farms in Belize and California, working with coffee farmers in Guatemala, working as a baker in Chicago, running a cafe, developing the culinary program at Gorman Heritage Farm and other jobs in the culinary/agriculture world, Jamie decided to continue her passion for agriculture, food and teaching by starting FarmChef in 2015.
She has had many mentors, friends, students, and colleagues who have guided her through her culinary journey, and she is excited to take what she’s learned and developed and share it with Greater Cincinnati.
Her desire is to live sustainably, to educate others, and to harness people’s passions in creating a socially and environmentally sustainable lifestyle for all people.
Adding to her journey, in November of 2012, Jamie was selected to be one of the US delegates to Slow Food’s International Congress and Terra Madre – Salone del Gusto in Italy representing this region’s food heritage. She is also the co-chair of Slow Food Cincinnati.
She lives for the next adventure, and delights in the small intricacies of life and the natural world.
