Peggy Farabaugh, Founder and Believer
She is a CEO who brakes for salamanders, has bottle-fed rescued squirrels and spent her vacation building furniture for a rural school in Costa Rica. She believes in the future and in the people who will build it. A former distance-learning professor at Tulane University with a master’s in environmental health & safety, she turned an interest in forest conversation and endangered species into a growing, local business. She delivers rainforest statistics at breakneck speed, but knows how to slow down and appreciate the beauty of a newly finished piece of heirloom furniture.
Dennis moved from Connecticut to south western New Hampshire 12 years ago to be closer to the outdoor recreational opportunities northern New England offers. His hobbies include regional travel, motorcycling, hiking, camping & woodworking. Dennis’ main inspiration for writing is to share the great
things he discovers about northern New England while out exploring the small cities & countryside.

Loryn is a senior at UMass Amherst in Communications and Conservation. She realized that she had a skill for writing and a passion for agriculture through her time in the FFA, writing speeches and workshops and learning about conservation. She began taking journalism classes and found that she liked writing press releases and blogs the most, which lead her to communications and marketing. In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing and crocheting. She also love being outside, playing soft-ball, walking,
hiking and staying involved with the agricultural community.
