2018 Anchor Run CSA farm crew!
Field Manager Hannah Conner
Hannah joined the team of growers at Anchor Run Farm in the winter of 2016. She lives on site in the White Pine Ranch and is so happy to call Anchor Run her home.
Hannah first cultivated her love of plants and fresh food in her grandfather's and mother's gardens at her childhood home in Newtown borough. Inspired by these memories, she explored her interest in the natural world by taking jobs doing landscaping and working at a perennial plant nursery and even a flower shop. Her passion for things that grow also lead her to pursue a degree in Horticulture. Like Derek and Dana, after acquiring her Bachelor of Science, she ventured to the Washington D.C. area. While there she became immersed in Organic CSA farming at Clagett Farm, operated by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. After more than 3 years of honing her farming skills at Clagett, she decided to return to her roots and help feed the community she loves in Bucks County.
Hannah's role as field manager allows her to work closely with Dana and Derek and experience the scope of challenging and humbling tasks that are required to keep the farm running. As Derek once said, she is a wearer of many hats, requiring her to oversee everything from the seasonal staff to marketing to barn organization! Each day Hannah falls more in love with life here on the farm, and she is so thankful to the amazing community that allows Anchor Run to be so successful!
Assistant Farmer Patrick McGowan
Patrick joined the crew in the Spring of 2017. As an assistant farmer he is involved in every aspect of production both in the greenhouse and in the field.
Pat grew up in Churchville and has been a part of the farm’s community since childhood, as his family has been members for many years. Pat has always had a love for nature and outdoor activities. His interests eventually led him to gain growing experience at Esterly Link Landscapes. While landscaping, he also developed skills as a stone mason, which he puts to work around the farm as well.
Pat currently lives on site at the farm and looks forward to continuing to learn about sustainable agriculture during the following growing seasons.
CSA Pick Up Room Manager Becky Conner
Becky Conner is a native of Newtown and has been a member of Anchor Run since the 2016 season. She discovered the farm when her daughter, Hannah, became the Field Manager and has now fully embraced CSA life! Becky is thrilled to be helping out in the pick up room and, as a long time gardener, looks forward to continuing to learn about growing food!
