Jenner Harsha names a couple watersheds home: the Skagit Valley of northern Washington & the fringes of Bootjack, California where jumping into the Merced River is truly the mercy of summer. From a young age Jenner worked on a neighbor’s organic farm and CSA. Harvesting chickens and turkeys and coming home covered in tomato pollen everyday was her gateway to caring about the how and the what that came to lay on her fork. Today, Jenner manages a modest garden, hunts, fishes and forages for her provisions along with her biologist husband, Tim, and pound-pup turned bird-dog Rye.
Jenner followed in her folks’ footsteps as a park ranger for 10 years, ultimately landing in environmental compliance. There are a few good rumors about her bear wrangling in Yosemite & she’s been known to complete self-inflicted ultra hikes up and down the Teton Range. She met her husband at the local watering hole in Jackson, fresh off the river; her raccoon eyed sunburn irresistible. Since newlywed four years ago they have lived in a mere 224 square feet and yes, still like each other.
Having worn the traditional ranger’s flat hat for the better part of a decade, Jenner appreciates the labor and attention it takes to create a true custom hat and is grateful to carry on the time honored craft in the iconic western town of Jackson, WY.
