Chez Orchard

Chez dreams of a future where fair access to local food is the norm for all. That dream spurred her to leave behind city living and executive roles managing customer experience for the tertiary sector, and instead transition to becoming a small business owner, part-time farmer and the customer support coordinator for Open Food Network.

She brings the dynamo combination of a farmer’s understanding of the unique challenges producers face in taking their product to market, a background in customer experience and marketing, and a passion for sustainable business and love of all things food.

Chez is looking forward to connecting with our diverse customer base and is here to help with all your questions. She’s focused on making sure you get the most out of all the features Open Food Network has to offer!

Chez is a student of cheesemaking and a lover of Sci-Fi. She is on the board of Young Farmers Connect and provides support as the membership manager working on projects that aim to help more young people start farming. On the weekends you’ll find her hiking the many waterfalls and swimming holes of the Northern Rivers in NSW.
