Myra Goodman

Myra Goodman and her husband, Drew, founded Earthbound Farm back in 1984 on 2.5 acres in Carmel Valley, California — where they learned how to farm organically and cultivated a lifelong passion literally in their backyard. (Learn more about the Earthbound story here.)

In addition to being a featured contributor Earthbound’s site and other food blogs and magazines, Myra has authored three cookbooks that share her passion for delicious food and a healthy planet: Food to Live By – The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook; The Earthbound Cook – 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet; and her latest, Straight from the Earth – 100 Irresistible Vegan Recipes for Everyone, which she co-authored with her daughter, Marea.

As a passionate advocate for organic food and farming, Myra has appeared on dozens of televisions shows including Oprah, Live with Regis and Kelly, and Good Morning America Health, and has been featured in many publications including More, People and Bon Appetit. She and her husband still live on their original farm in Carmel Valley.
