Before Karis Tressel launched the Old Road Farm, a regenerative farm in Buffalo Township, with her husband, Alex, she had never picked up a chicken.

Karis is a naturopathic doctor from Southern California, and Alex is a helicopter pilot from Berlin, Germany. When they moved to Washington County 2 1/2 years ago after Alex accepted a job as a medical helicopter pilot at Allegheny Health System Canonsburg Hospital, the couple unexpectedly discovered an opportunity to pursue a healthy lifestyle, healthy food and healthy land.
