Who We Are

Rachael is a mother of three children, a respected home schooler and La Leche League Leader. Her strong community connections and communication skills have been key to the growth of Bailey’s.

Maryrose, a mother of two children and is a successful crafter with a business education. She provides Bailey’s with its operational structure.

Andrew Ward is the web guru behind the Bailey’s online ordering system. Being able to place online orders efficiently is what gives our members easy access to so much choice!

Bailey’s Local Foods was founded by Nina Bailey-Dick and her father Wendell Bailey. This operation started as a family business. Nina as the organizer, and Wendell as her right-hand man. Nina sold her share in November 2010, and Wendell stayed involved in regular Bailey’s operations until his passing in 2012.
