I’m from the Boston area and worked at a non-profit that brought together kids from the city and the suburbs to work together on organic farms. I loved the work so much and decided to pursue food and agriculture policy in college and my subsequent career. After working at non-profits and meeting my future farmer husband Bryan, I realized that I just wanted to be the one farming instead of talking about it, and switched to being full time on the farm in 2019. We moved to our forever farm at the beginning of 2020.
I’m passionate about being part of a community of small farmers working to grow food in ways that improves soil health while creating liveable-wage jobs. We are very lucky to be in an area near many other innovative small farms. The way we collaborate, share resources, and help each other inspires my drive to continue this work even when I’m tired or discouraged.
