Hi Y'all! My name is Tracy, I am a Nourishing Foods Ambassador, a Real Foodie, and a Certified Holistic Health Coach and I empower and inspire people to appreciate passionately raised delicious food. Food is my love language, I've been known to be comfortable in the kitchen, and someone my family calls “Aunt Bossy”.

My journey started when I started paying attention to what I was eating, the quality of food we were buying, what justified my dollar, and what MY definition of real food actually was.  Hillbilly Nutrition was founded in 2012 because I became impassioned by what I had learned.  I tried my hand at growing some of my own food & began sourcing everything I could from local farms.  Fast forward to 2013 I decided to go through a year long Nutrition program to help me help others.  I was beginning to find my way.  

At the end of 2013 when my daughter was born I realized the purpose for all of this passion.  It was for her.  All of it.  I realized that everything I had learned and everything I had changed in my life that I thought was for ME, was always for her.  She needed every single ounce of what I believe in and practice in terms of food, living and lifestyle.

In 2014 I graduated from IIN and started serving our community with quality sourced food. The Hillbilly Farm Stand Co-Op was born to continue educating others and feeding families and friends with pastured, range-fed meats from local farms.  We also gathered fresh dairy cheeses & yogurts, local brewed kombucha, raw-local unfiltered honey & locally roasted coffee.  This Farm Stand was a labor of love and gave me a chance to provide my local community with a resource for buying real, sustainable food.  One of the hardest things for me to do when I started my journey was define AND find what I considered "real food".  This Farm Stand gave those that came to me with questions, a place to go!

Fast forward to 2016, when we finally realized it was our chance to move to a little piece of Texas paradise.  We packed up our suburb home and our (then) family of 3 and moved to the Homestead in early 2017.  It was a dream come true.  We knew that we had so much more to give to this food community and raising our favorite foods was how we were going to do it.  We are so thankful to all of the farmers that we have met with, visited their farms, questioned about farming practices and processing and sourcing to get us started. It's been such an amazing thing to see come together and we can't wait to see what the future holds.  We have lots of ideas about where this farm is going but until then, we hope that you can enjoy some of our foods and our friends food on your dinner table.

Hillbilly Nutrition is your local source for land focused, range-fed, antibiotic & hormone free, nutrient dense, passionately raised, delicious food.
