Meet Your New Farmer!!

Hello wonderful Powisset Farm Community!

I am happy to announce two awesome and wonderful things!
1. Your new farmer, Zannah Porter has started her time at Powisset Farm!
2. Our Pre-Thanksgiving farm stand is happening tomorrow, Saturday the 21st from 10am-2pm!

....introducing...Farmer Zannah!  Hooray!!!



I would like to give a very big hello to the Powisset Farm community. My name is Zannah Porter and I am the new Farm Manager at Powisset Farm. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you all a little bit about myself. I had the privilege of growing up surrounded by undeveloped land and romping through the fields and forests around Blacksburg, Virginia. My father is a botanist and helped foster a fascination with the flora and fauna that surrounded me. I attended Warren Wilson College where I studied Outdoor Leadership and spent some of my free time volunteering on the college farm. I spent several years being a farm groupie, volunteering on friend’s farms around the country. When I moved to Massachusetts seven years ago, I had the opportunity to work on a farm and actually get paid for it! I fell hard for farming and for three seasons at Land’s Sake farm in Weston. I then spent four seasons at Waltham Fields Community Farm where I have been a Farm Manager for the past two seasons.
            I am very excited to be part of the Powisset Farm community. I have already met so many amazing folks and am just awed by your love and dedication to this community. I look forward to meeting you, growing delicious vegetables for you, and celebrating this very special place with you.

Your Farm Manager
