Josie Hart - Farm Program Manager
With the farm since March of 2011, Josie manages the new farm programs such as the Farm Stands in Food Deserts or Veterans Farm Program. Focusing on development and sustainability of programs, Josie loves to connect people with the farm especially at CSA distributions which is a weekly mini celebration of fresh food. Truly terrified and inspired by dahlias, Josie maintains the cutting garden and loves making mono-chromatic bouquets for shareholders or farm crew.
Phil Cordelli - CSA Farm Manager
Phil is in his third season with the CSA. He has been growing food since 2002 when he started as an intern at a former commune deep in the Northern California woods. From planting epasote amid rubble in vacant lots in New York City to spending days atop a tractor plowing the ground for a 55-acre farm, it's been a wild ride through the world of agriculture, settling happily here at Chatfield.
Jamie Wickler - Veteran's Farm Program Coordinator (new position!)
Jamie has always had a love for the outdoors; anything from hiking, skiing, camping and, of course, gardening. She is so excited to be working on the Veterans Farm Program this year and to be part of a community working towards a sustainable food source.
Chris Krabbenhoeft - Market Grower (a new position!)
Chris comes to us with a background of music festivals, hippy reunions, Tibetan prayer flags and local agriculture. He likes to ride his bike 20-30 miles a day and enjoys truck driving. Chris' favorite foods are a peach cobbler and frozen bananas.
