Welcome to the official site for Clara Coleman!

CLARA COLEMAN is a second-generation organic farmer, creator of Real Farmer Care, podcast host, farm consultant, writer, TEDx and keynote speaker on sustainable four-season farming, and daughter of renowned farming pioneer Eliot Coleman. Clara and her two teenage sons live at Four Season Farm, where she leads and operates the farm business.

Clara has consulted with many sustainable agriculture organizations and clients over the last 15 years including Wegmans Food Markets, Maine Farmland Trust, Apricot Lane Farms, Beetlebung Farm, and Johnny’s Selected Seeds. Clara also conceptualized the ARC Farm model – an innovative & collaborative four-season farm model for young farmers. Other past experience includes co-founding Divide Creek Farm – an organic, intensively-managed two-acre four-season vegetable farm that was located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. 

Today Clara is passionate about caring for farmers through Real Farmer Care, sharing winter growing knowledge through her Winter Growers Podcast, and finding new ways to inspire and support the next generation of farmers to create sustainable and lasting farming legacies for generations to come.

With four season farming experience in the harsh climates of Maine and the Rocky Mountains, Clara has much to offer farmers and gardeners seeking to provide abundant four season harvests.
