Portia Fieldstone

Portia Fieldstone was raised on the prairie in North Dakota, growing wheat and working in the fields alongside her family members. Portia, the oldest of thirteen siblings, left North Dakota seven years ago when the “Gluten-Free Movement” wiped out the once prosperous Fieldstone wheat farm. After much soul searching, including a brief disappointing engagement as a street mime at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, Portia moved to Grass Valley with her new husband, Oscar, a journeyman forester who wrote his groundbreaking doctoral thesis on monopine husbandry. In 2012, Oscar was tragically killed in a horrific falling tree accident that wiped out all cell service in Penn Valley for several years.
