There are few things more exciting than being on a natural, lush farm especially when the mission is to produce good food and share the farm experience with our community. My full-time work and career developing solar and wind energy as a climate-safe energy supply arose out of the same passion for a sustainable future that drives our goals for Spring Creek Farm. We are a natural regenerative farm producing good local food with a farm experience that all can enjoy. The desire to create community around farming comes from my memories of the Mennonite farmers where I grew up in Harleysville Montgomery County. Although I didn’t grow up on a farm, as a kid I grew tomatoes and other favorites in my garden for sale at the family grocery store. That experience and the family time that goes with it, putting up green beans, corn, and apple sauce in the fall and sharing great food in the winter is worth carrying into the next generation.
After high school I attended Northeastern University in Electrical Engineering and went on to get a law degree at Georgetown Law School. Heading west after law school I practiced law in Colorado for twenty years representing entrepreneurs and start-up businesses and then served as a Commissioner on the Colorado Public Utility Commission. I returned to the Delaware Valley in 1999 to cofound the renewable energy company I still lead and to pursue my passions for farming, family and community here in my home community.
Spring Creek Farm is the latest expansion of our regenerative farming operation with vegetables, cattle and chickens designed to lead the way on local farming that is both ecologically and economically sustainable. We look forward to seeing it grow and take shape as a place where the community shares the experience and joys of traditional farming.
I’m thrilled to be partnering with Brent on developing a long-term vision and strategy to grow Spring Creek Farm. With my experience leading retail teams I am honored to spend time around a group of inspirational young farmers at Spring Creek committed to bringing you delicious and nutritious local food with natural agricultural practices that preserve our land and natural resources for generations to come.
I attended high school and college in upstate New York, graduating with a degree in Biology from Hamilton College. My sense of adventure and my passion for flyfishing took me from New York to Montana following graduation, where my passion for nature, conservation, and freshwater ecosystems bloomed. Montana is also where my full time work and career in Retail began, taking me from Montana to Alaska to San Francisco over 20 years, and finally here to Solebury Township. I’ve spent my career building world class teams and leading them to sustained results across sales, profitability, customer satisfaction, and employee engagement. Entrepreneurial spirit and brand building are in my blood.
It’s my retail business experience, my shared interests with Brent in nature and natural resource conservation, and my personal commitment to connecting our Solebury Township community that has brought me to Spring Creek Farm. I look forward to introducing more of you to Spring Creek each year, expanding the ways we engage with our members and the community, and sharing the joy that time on the Farm brings me and my family, with all of you.
