​Kay Bell was born in Jacksonville, Texas where she was raised on a farm with her parents and siblings.  Farming was something Kay did not have in her mind to do when she was preparing for her future.  However, the need to live a healthier and more sustainable life motivated Kay to catch on to her roots of farming.  Kay now resides in Waco, Texas.
