Brian Miller
Brian Miller has farmed with his partner, Cindy, since 1999 in one of what naturalist John Muir called the “small slanting valleys” of East Tennessee. They raise sheep and hogs to provide meat for their own table and those of their lucky customers, as well as growing far more food than the two of them could possibly eat. He is the author of Kayaking with Lambs: Notes from an East Tennessee Farmer.
