Field crew manager Julia writes,

“I spent my first summer on the Island last year, and instantly fell in love with the area. I worked as a MGF field crew member in 2017, and was promoted to field crew manager for the 2018 season.

“I grew up in a suburban area, which meant my only exposure to farming was a small vegetable garden in my backyard. I truly discovered my love for farming while at UMass Amherst. I entered college in pursuit of an animal science degree, but I quickly added a second degree in sustainable food and farming.

Aside from vegetable production, I have spent a considerable amount of time working on a goat dairy farm. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, fishing, and skiing.”
