Staff Profiles: MadisonStaff Profiles – There are a few new faces at the farm, and we wanted to introduce you to everyone so we can all get to know each other! Up next: Simon and Rony, our summer guests from Australia!
Madison Vander Hill
I joined the farm in May, coming on as the farm outreach and retail manager. You will find me expanding/improving our store in the barn, harvesting for markets, and selling at all of our markets – in Elmira, Watkins Glen, and Trumansburg. (Liz will be there too, not to worry.)
I graduated from Ithaca College in 2013 with a degree in environmental studies, and have always loved working outdoors and teaching others about good food and the environment. I am of the opinion that small farms are just as much a part of “nature” as wilderness, and that running a farm responsibly (and supporting a small, local farm with your business) is a wonderful way to be a steward of environment. I am proud to be a part of a business that seeks to bring people out to the farm and experience it first-hand, and to offer good, healthy food at affordable prices.
I live in Ithaca, and when I’m not at the farm you can probably find me coaching rowing on the Lake Cayuga inlet, gardening on my front porch, or just kickin’ it downtown.
I hope you’ll find me here for many summers to come. See you at the farm!
