I’m Sophie Hansen. I live on a farm just out of Orange NSW with my farmer husband Tim and kids Alice and Tom. From here, I write about and take photographs of beautiful seasonal food and the people behind it. Many of these stories can be found on my blog, Local is Lovely.

I also run the My Open Kitchen e-course, workshops and podcast, and speak at events all over the countryside, all with a view to supporting and inspiring farmers and food producers to build engaged and supportive online networks with customers, peers and collaborators.

This is the time for us farmers to tell our ‘why’ to the world - and social media is a wonderful, achievable way to do this.
