"Jody Bolluyt is a biodynamic farmer in the Hudson Valley. Together with her husband Jean-Paul Courtens, Jody runs Roxbury Farm, one of the largest CSA farms in the country. Jody grew up in rural Iowa working for large-scale corn and soybean growers during summer vacations. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in biology and botany. In 2000, working with Equity Trust, Roxbury Farm secured long-term land tenure on 150 acres of land to which Jody and Jean-Paul hold a lifetime lease. Through the help of Equity Trust, Roxbury Farm CSA members, and Open Space Institute, Roxbury is now a protected farm, one of the first to make a new kind of land tenure work, and it is becoming a model for other small farms around the country."
Her mother is Linda Bolluyt .
