Stuart O'niell

Executive Director

Stuart hails from the suburban jungle surrounding Washington DC.  Following a strong desire the escape the rat race, Stuart moved to Southern Oregon in 1995 to complete a BS in Geology at Southern Oregon University.

Stuart’s passion for environmental and social justice led him to work as a community organizer on numerous campaigns for over a decade.  His introduction to agriculture came in 2004 when he took an opportunity to work at Boone’s Farm/Siskiyou Crest Goat Dairy.  There he learned first hand the opportunities and challenges of running a small scale, socially responsible agricultural operation.

In his free time, Stuart is most likely tinkering in the garden, jogging in the hills surrounding Ashland, cooking up something in the kitchen, cruising the valley on his bicycle, or exploring the depths of love with his daughter Sadie Luna and partner Kat.
