Hannah grew up on a corn and soybean farm in Southern Minnesota and graduated from Mount Holyoke College in western Massachusetts in 2004. She worked in politics and government in St. Paul and Washington, DC, grew her first vegetables on rooftops in Brooklyn, and fell in love with grass-based livestock farming as an intern at Kinderhook Farm in the Hudson Valley of Upstate New York.

She returned home to Minnesota and began her pastured pig operation, Belly Rub Bacon, in 2015 at beautiful Dancing Winds Farms outside of Kenyon, MN, formerly a popular goat dairy run by Mairi Doerr.

In the spring of 2016, Hannah and her partner bought 160 acres of beautiful rolling hay fields and wildlife-filled wetlands outside Finlayson, MN, and Medicine Creek Farm was born.
