Katie Steere is an entrepreneur and co-owner of Wild Earth Farm in Vermont. In addition to raising grass-fed beef and lamb with her husband, she’s busy re-imagining how we as humans can live well on this earth.

Her current obsessions are women and wool and the magic that happens when the two of them come together. She has recently taken a step back from the day to day of farming to start a wool sponges business and start planning women and wool retreats that will be happening on her farm.

Katie lives in the hills of central Vermont with her husband, two dogs, four cats, 50 beef cows, and about 30 Icelandic sheep. One of her favorite parts of being an adult is living out the childhood of her dreams. The highlight of 2024 so far has been welcoming Karma, her jersey milk cow, to the farm.
