Noah Gress began his farming career at the age of 19 at Solviva Farm in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, where he leased the land for 10 years before returning home to Chester County. After leasing land at Pete’s Produce Farm in Westtown where he grew salad mix for both the store and market gardening, he joined our staff in March 2011. As Rushton Farm Field Manager, he has been instrumental in Rushton Farm’s success, overseeing the day-to-day operations, property maintenance, and educational outreach at the farm. Off the farm and out of the greenhouse, Noah spends time with his family and owns and operates Raindance Apiaries, a beekeeping business focused on honey production and pollination.
Noah's favorite part about working at Willistown Conservation Trust?
Having the ability to grow the food without worrying about selling it. This work provides a living wage for the farmer, connects people with food, and allows us to provide people with locally grown food.
