Tierney Lawlor

Growing up in Ansonia, Connecticut I did not have much of a farm background. During high school, I volunteered and worked at a horse farm, and it was during this time that I decided I wanted to pursue an agricultural degree in college.  While attending UCONN, I majored in Sustainable Farm and Ranch Management and became involved with the school farm.  I worked with the beef cattle, sheep and chickens, but I truly enjoyed working with the dairy cows.  While school was in session I was also able to milk at night and I came to realize that dairy farming was the route I wanted to follow.    After graduating from UCONN I was in search of an opportunity to learn as much as I could about dairy farming and all things farming in general.  When I visited Wolfe’s Neck Center I was not only captivated by the beautiful area, but I was excited to learn about the sustainable farming philosophy of the organization and grazing dairy operation.  I chose to become a part of the Wolfe’s Neck team because I want to gather all the knowledge I can about managing a sustainable grass-fed dairy farm while also learning about other livestock, mechanics, and the business side of owning and operating a farm.  I can’t wait to help Wolfe’s Neck Center succeed and grow.

In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, especially basketball. I also enjoy knitting, reading, exploring the outdoors and hanging out with friends.
