Krisan Christensen, is the queer-identified owner/operator of Farm N' Wild Wellspring! Her passion for agriculture began in Colorado, traversed the United States and Canada, and helped bring her back home with a renewed sense of place and belonging.
Krisan began her professional life as the Art Director of Womens' Adventure magazine and after years of dedicated work chose to start living her own adventures. The first of which was helping run the Bakery Department at Alfalfa's Market, and then expanded to two+ years of travesersing the United States (and parts of Canada), helping put on farm-to-table dinners with Outstanding in the Field. Her travels around the country brought her to Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in New York where she truly began her farming education, first as the Greenhouse Apprentice, then as the Propagation Fellow.
After learning, apprenticing, and growing at Stone Barns, Krisan has returned to her beloved home in Colorado with a deep gratitude for all of those that continue to teach her and help her grow.
Here's to a new beginning and years of growth and learning, beauty and connection.
With love and gratitude.
