I grew up in New London, New Hampshire with a population of about 4,000 people. It’s in a rural area with many family farms, and I lived across the street from my cousins who operated and ran their own family farm. I spent a great amount of time there, which is where I became interested in farming.
After volunteering and working at various horse farms during high school, I decided that I wanted to work on a farm. I worked at Cascade Brook Farm for over a year in North Sutton, New Hampshire, where they raise 100% Grass Fed Black Angus Beef and Pasture Raised Berkshire Pork. They also have chickens and sell their eggs. Working on this farm, I learned the crucial aspects of farming.
It wasn’t until my boss found Wolfe’s Neck Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship program online and mentioned it to me that I became interested. During my visit here, I was not only blown away by the views but also by the healthy and well-kept livestock, friendly people and opportunities to learn. I had never been interested in dairy farming until I came to WNC. I look forward to learning about grazing and how to run a dairy farm. I am most excited to go to AI school and learn how to operate and take care of farm equipment. After graduating from this program, I hope to feel confident in running my own farm.
In my free time, I am usually taking and/or editing photos, listening to music, spending time with friends, exploring or traveling back to New Hampshire to see my family.← Back to Blog
