Marla cooley


kaleb & sarah


Marla is a mother of three, grandmother of five, horse breeder & trainer, entrepreneur, farmer, warrior for human rights, animal advocate, and water protector. From her vantage point of six decades worth of adventures, one constant theme in her life is her love of horses. Marla worked with horses on/off most of her life. With that in mind, she feels her strongest character point is the love of animals and nature, and her lifelong studies of animal husbandry and inter species connection.


She is driven by passion to make positive change using this love she feels for and from animals & the natural world.

In addition to developing Foothills Farm, Marla opened and successfully operated

two food service establishments in Gainesville, Georgia in the 1990s, and for an 11 year stent.

Feeling ready, she is eager to take on the challenges to develop Foothills Farm's community, imploring others to share the load! Get involved! Let us work together for change & solutions to the world issues we all face. Let's do it together in harmony & balance, the permaculture way!
