About

NancyHaydenNancy J. Hayden

I am an artist, writer, organic farmer, and lifelong learner living in Northern Vermont. I recently retired as an engineering professor so I could spend more time on the farm, in my studios, and writing. I feel blessed to live on a farm, The Farm Between, in such a beautiful place and have the opportunity to pursue my creative interests whether it’s digging in the dirt, writing, or making art. I have a variety of different degrees starting with a BS in forest biology, an MS and PhD in environmental engineering, a BA in studio art and English, and an MFA in creative writing. This diversity of interests and education has been wonderful to draw on for both my art and writing, and I never run out of ideas.

Here’s a recent article about me, “Intertwining agriculture and art,” in Lancaster Farming 2015.
