Joe Ornstein
Farm Apprentice

Joe has split his living between Albany, Buffalo, and Brooklyn, so this is the next stop in his eventual quest to live in every county in New York state. He comes to Sylvester Manor with an intense interest in our food systems and finding the connections between what we eat and where it comes from, as well as a desire to work outside and think more about how collective labor and food foster community. You can find him regularly either at the beach or slowly annoying his crew mates with made up songs in the field, and if you promise him spicy food or karaoke he'll probably show up to anything.
