Our goal is to provide delicious, healthy, affordable food for the Essex foodscape and beyond. We work with draft horses because we believe their presence on the farm is good for the land, the air and our souls. Reber Rock is designed as a two-family farm, with the management and labor burden split across two couples, so that each can stay health and happy for many years to come.
Racey Bingham and Nathan Henderson have been farming together for five years in Essex, and own Reber Rock Farm.
Racey’s work on the farm focuses on managing the Farm Store and Farmers Markets, supporting livestock production and community outreach. She is also a trained international development professional having worked on rural resilience issues in humanitarian and development contexts in West and Central Africa for the last 17 years. In 2017, she co-founded Ndara a private, for-profit business that builds marketable skills for artisans in the wartorn Central African Republic and sells their products globally.
