A graduate of Harvard University and the author of The Dirty Life and Good Husbandry, she and her husband Mark have run Essex Farm since 2003, where they live with their two daughters.

At the Guardian, Kimball tagged five of the best books on sustainable eating, including:
One thing we should all agree on: we can’t discuss sustainable eating without addressing the climate crisis. Agriculture contributes a hefty 30% to our total greenhouse gases. It’s a huge part of the world’s most pressing existential problem, and yet it holds the potential to be part of the solution. Drawdown by Paul Hawken includes a section on food production, which illuminates the many well-researched and proven agricultural techniques we can use to make it a force for good in the fight for our planet’s survival.
