Nancy Fuller is a warm, loving mother of six and grandmother of 13, and the owner of Ginsberg’s Foods, a multimillion-dollar business she runs with her husband. Nancy lives in an authentic 17th-century farmhouse on beautiful, rolling land in New York’s Hudson Valley region. Nancy’s food and recipes represent her surroundings on the farm and her philosophy of feeding others with delicious, simple meals from the heart.
Nancy was born and raised in Copake, New York, to a farmer with 13 generations of farmers’ wives before her. She spent her childhood on the farm with a garden the size of a parking lot. In 1963, she attended Buxton School in Williamstown, Massachusetts and found her niche there, when she was the proctor of the dorm and the head of the social committee. She graduated in 1967 and attended Santa Anna Junior College in California.
After college, she left California and moved back to New York. In 1997, Nancy married her husband, David Ginsberg, a dairy farmer. With eight people around the dinner table, it was a dinner party seven nights a week. The constant cooking inspired the purchase of a 1950s motel which Nancy later converted into a hotel and restaurant. It was a country restaurant with an old inn atmosphere. Catering became her forte, which led to the necessity of a larger building.
Nancy began hosting Farmhouse Rules in hopes to showcase her love for her family and friends, and of course, the recipes that have followed her 65 years of being in a kitchen through the show.
In addition to hosting Farmhouse Rules, Nancy is also a judge on Holiday Baking Championship and Spring Baking Championship.
