Hey! I’m Alli, the creator of the website Longbourn Farm where I share farmstead life and simple homemade recipes. I believe that family meals create special moments and those moments become treasured memories. In addition to tried-and-true kitchen favorites, I share practical farm and garden tips.
I excel at making things simple this applies in the kitchen and on the farm! Call me lazy, call me smart, call me a lazy smarty-pants, either works. I keep farmstead life low-maintenance and keep things real – showing all aspects of the farm. I use my formal education in agriculture to help you understand farming and ranching. I believe knowledge and choices in the grocery store empower you to feel confident in the kitchen!
I completed a BS degree in Animal, Dairy, and Veterinary Science with an emphasis in Biotechnology and an MS in Animal Nutrition with a focus on Ruminants.
During my undergraduate education, I worked in reproductive cloning labs, and during that time I gained a unique and in-depth education on how biotechnology can pair with agriculture to help feed a hungry world.
It was during my Beef Production class that I developed a strong passion for helping bridge the communication gap between producers and consumers.
During my Master’s program, I gained more hands-on experience and a solid understanding of how science and agriculture can work together to increase animal productivity and efficiency.
I am so glad I finally was able to put my passion for agriculture and where food comes from together with my passion for cooking and creating magical meals and memories in my home. I love sharing with you all and value you being here! Thank you.
If you are interested in working together, please email me at email@example.com for my media kit and current rates. I love partnering on blog posts, social posts, TV segments, and speaking engagements.

A friendly reminder…
There is really just one rule here, and it’s one that I’m adamant about: having a choice about the food you buy and eat is a luxury and a blessing.
Bashing on me or anyone else for a method or food type we use or purchase will absolutely not be tolerated. This means that I typically won’t say one method for purchasing or raising food is “right” and one is “wrong,” there is a place for almost everything in agriculture – personal or large scale.
