Lead Farmer & Field Manager
Hannah entered the world of organic agriculture after years of studying nutrition and herbal medicine. She is a farmer that has learned-by-doing, and is dedicated to feeding the community while preserving the natural ecology of the land. 2023 is Hannah’s 6th year as a full-time farmer and 4th season with Spring Creek Farm. This year she is especially excited to expand production and grow more food for more people!
Matt started farming over 10 years ago. He began with backyard chickens and progressed to two dairy cows that he milked with his young children. Eventually, he took a job on an organic farm in upstate NY that helped him gain experience and encouraged him to grow into a management role. Matt has raised hundreds of organic pigs, cattle, turkeys, chickens, sheep, and goats. He's thrilled to be at Spring Creek Farm and excited to grow the livestock operation.
Property & Facilities Manager
Roberto has maintained the land where Spring Creek Farm now sits for nearly 30 years! He can fix, fabricate, or figure-out just about anything on the farm, and especially likes projects that require digging with the backhoe. Roberto’s depth of knowledge and sense of humor are the glue that keep us all together
Second Year Apprentice & Crew Leader
Emmett graduated from Elizabethtown College with a degree in Anthropology. He has a passion for working outside and spent two seasons doing trail work in NY and PA before landing at Spring Creek in 2022. This will be Emmett's second year farming with us, and he is excited to learn more of the nitty-gritty of vegetable production and planning, while helping our newer apprentices get the lay of the land. Emmett's favorite veggies to grow are radishes and fennel!
Event Coordinator/CSA Member
Val is a friend of the farm who has volunteered her time and energy as lead coordinator for the fun, family-friendly events at Spring Creek Farm. Her enthusiasm for organic farming and desire to share it with the community is truly inspiring
Laura is a friend of the farm who has volunteered her knowledge and beekeeping abilities to sustain our 7 hives. These beehives are critical to the health of the land; pollinating our fruits and vegetables and providing sweet, golden honey - extracted and bottled by Laura herself
Brent's career of developing renewable energy arose from the same passion for a sustainable future that drives our goals at Spring Creek Farm. Growing up amidst mennonite farmers and maintaining the family garden, Brent has lush memories of putting up green beans, corn, and tomatoes in summer, apple sauce in the fall, and enjoying fresh food year round. This experience and accompanying skills are ones we believe are worth carrying into the next generation. Spring Creek Farm is the expression of these values. We look forward to seeing it grow as a place where the community shares the joy of organic farming.
