Ron worked for 16 years in the financial services industry before returning to New Hampshire in 2005 with his family. Living Earth Farm, a “certified organic” micro farm, was created three years later. Winter greens and salad mixes were a specialty at Living Earth Farm. Over time, the farm expanded into berries, vines and fruit trees (especially apples). All of the crops at Living Earth Farm were grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. Mini high tunnels and row covers were used extensively to protect crops (including fruit trees).

Ron became a Master Gardener Volunteer in the spring of 2009. In 2010, he joined UNH Cooperative Extension as the Rockingham County Agricultural Resources Program Coordinator and directed the activities of the Master Gardener Volunteers in Rockingham. Ron is passionate about teaching people how to grow their own nutritious food for better health and well-being. He is an avid four-season grower and loves sharing his experiences as a winter gardener and orchardist through the numerous workshops he delivers.

Living Earth Farm was sold in the fall of 2017 and the Christie’s are now looking for a larger farm in the Maine Seacoast area. Ron currently lives with his wife Mary and their two college-age children Steven and Julie in Stratham, NH.
