SOPHIA NGUYEN ENG

Sophia Nguyen Eng also known as “Sprinkle With Soil,” wears many hats as an author, farmer, and marketer with a passion for educating on food, farming and community building. She is a first-generation Vietnamese-American who left a successful career in growth marketing in Silicon Valley to start a five-acre permaculture farm in the Appalachian region of eastern Tennessee. During her time in the tech industry, Eng led successful growth marketing campaigns for startups and Fortune 500 companies like Workday, InVision, and Smartsheet, which led to opportunities to develop a certificate training program with CXL Institute and being a founder of the tech organization Women in Growth. A sought-after speaker, she has presented at Google HQ, GrowthHackers and the global SaaStalk tech conferences. Now she draws on her experiences speaking on stage and her knowledge of food, farming and health to present at homesteading conferences.

Eng is also a Weston A. Price chapter leader and the founder of the website Sprinkle with Soil. Alongside her husband, Tim, (known as the “Homesteading Realtor”), they manage a real estate team while living on a small farm nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. Here, they raise dairy and beef cattle, sheep and poultry, sharing their journey on the Call To Farms podcast. Sophia shares her expertise by teaching classes on preparing and cooking nourishing food, catering to the needs of busy working families.
