Leah Puro

My farming journey began on a diversified vegetable farm in the mountains of Northern Argentina and led me to farms in South Carolina, Vermont, and the Hudson Valley. Captivated by plants and soils, I went back to school for a Masters in Science in International Agricultural Development from the University of California Davis. As a graduate student researcher, I conducted research in Vietnam and Cambodia with the International Center for Tropical Agriculture and in California with the University of California Cooperative Extension. My agricultural experiences have ranged from collecting soils in Vietnam to crop rotation planning to trimming the hooves of 200 sheep and lots in between.

At Wolfe’s Neck, I coordinate our on-farm research trials, work with OpenTEAM as a farm hub, and translate our exciting research into programming.

When I’m not at Wolfe’s Neck, you can find me running and exploring the woods or covered in flour experimenting with sourdough bread.
