Windmill Field Manager
Food, family and friends have always been at the top of Jocelyn’s set of values. Part of her youth included frequent visits to her grandparents’ farm property in Goshen, CT where, for a time, her uncles operated an organic vegetable farm. Fond memories of these visits combined with a love for Thanksgiving, cooking, potluck-gatherings, tending a garden and participating in a CSA led to her intentional immersion into farm culture four years ago. She spent two years apprenticing (one at Sylvester Manor), one as the Farm Stand Coordinator here at the Manor, and just completed her most recent role as Assistant Farm Manager at Upper Pond Farm in Lyme, CT. Jocelyn returns to Sylvester Manor eager to further hone her farm experience as the Windmill Field Manager. She also looks forward to continuing to build relationships in the community, eating and sharing good food. And, when she’s not farming, eating or sleeping, you’ll probably see her out on the water!
