Brittnee K. Bauman

 Assistant Windmill Field Manager

Brittnee joined Sylvester Manor as an Apprentice in April, 2017. A hospitality professional by trade, she is a self-proclaimed "farmer by blood." Brittnee has a degree in Business Administration from Webster University in Missouri. Upon graduating, she relocated to Portland, Maine where she honed her food and managerial skills in a variety of positions.

At Sylvester Manor, Brittnee has found a place rich in history, a farm that stewards the land the way her grandparents and great-grandparents did theirs and a community where good food is central to the narrative. As the season has progressed, she has taken on increasing responsibilities, including supervising the farm crew and orienting the new WWOOFERs who arrive throughout the season and was recently named Assistant Windmill Field Manager. One of her greatest joys (besides living in the 1700's Manor House) is cooking for her fellow farmers, often using the produce they have all worked so hard to grow.
