Michelle Miller

Founder, CEO
Farm Babe

Michelle grew up involved in 4-H, horse riding, and doing chores on her friends’ grandparents farms in Wisconsin. After working for Gucci On Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and spending a number of years in downtown Chicago, Michelle bought into organic, grass-fed, “Monsanto is the devil” food idealism.

After finishing a goal of traveling the world and visiting all seven continents by age 30, (68 countries) she became fascinated with culture and learning where our food comes from. Michelle ended up living with and dating a commercial scale farmer in Iowa for nearly eight years and it was there where her social media advocacy platform "The Farm Babe" was born in 2014. After learning the real truths of modern agriculture firsthand, Michelle began debunking the myths she once believed in as a former city girl.

Farmers, ranchers, and the story of our food origins have an amazing, uplifting story to tell and her mission is to give them a bigger voice in the food space. Consumers today are bombarded with misinformation, misleading marketing tactics, food labels, and activist agendas. So Michelle works to bring real, unbiased education and facts from real farmers and leading industry experts.

Today, Michelle reside on 17 acres of farmland near Gainesville, Florida where she is connected to leading agricultural professionals and continues to advocate for science and farming all around the world. Michelle is also the host of "HERD it here: a Florida agriculture podcast with the Farm Babe" where she works to raise awareness and improve policy for Florida farmers and ranchers. Michelle is happier than ever to be back to her "roots" of being involved with animals and farming and have gone from being skeptical about food to sharing passion of modern agriculture!
