On today’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet meet Elaine Vandiver. In her own words, Elaine became a farmer by happenstance. After moving out to a 10-acre parcel of land with her husband near Walla Wall, Washington in 2013 looking for a fresh start Elaine accidentally turned their old homestead’ with 2 llama into an alpaca and cut flower farmer. She left her stable government job in 2019 to farm full time and offers both a collection of commercially machine-knit garments from the fiber of her animals and grows and sells specialty cut flowers at the local farmer’s market and through her CSA.
