Lisa Doerr
Fortty-three tons of first crop on the ground.

Born on a farm in central Minnesota where the hardwoods meet the prairie, Lisa now lives in the beautiful St. Croix River valley of northwestern Wisconsin. This is where the last glaciers gave up their southward journey and the hardwoods now meet the pines.

Writing, riding and farming with her husband are staples of life. Lisa focuses on writing about rural lives and landscapes. Last year, Northern Lakes Farm produced 200 tons of quality alfalfa and alfalfa/grass hay. 

Lisa earned a journalism degree and then spent nearly 20 years as a communications and policy professional in the environmental movement. This work won her awards from Democrat Vice President Al Gore and Republican Governor Arne Carlson. A deep respect and passion for the earth and all its diverse life reverberates throughout her work.
