Melissa is a second year Food Studies student who works on integrated pest management (IPM) here at the Eden Hall Farm
I’m from the small south-central Indiana town called Trafalgar. I came to Food Studies with a B.S. in Family and Consumer Sciences from Ball State University. I’ve always been interested in food and considered going to culinary school to become a pastry chef. But, I am also passionate about agriculture so I felt that the Food Studies program would be a better fit for me. My focus and interest within this program is livestock and I spent this past summer interning at North Wood Ranch.
North Woods Ranch is a grass fed beef and pastured pork operation in Cranberry.
