Announcing Our New Program Manager

The Champlain Valley Farmer Coalition is delighted to welcome Kate Longfield as our new Program Manager!

Kate is originally from Cambridge Massachusetts, although considers Vermont home. She is currently pursuing her master’s in Natural Resources from the University of Vermont, specializing in both agricultural science and environmental law. She completed her bachelor’s of science in environmental studies from the same university, where she focused on Vermont land use, climate resilience, and policy.

Kate has served Vermont through the ECO AmeriCorps program, as Assistant Water Quality Program Coordinator for the Northwest Regional Planning Commission in St. Albans, and Assistant Planner for the Vermont Land Trust. She has worked closely with dairy, livestock, and diversified farmers, and has also lived and worked on livestock farms in New England and abroad in Australia.

Kate is thrilled to support Vermont’s dedicated farmers and stewards as the Champlain Valley Farmer Coalition’s new Program Manager.

Kate lives in Richmond with her partner Spencer and spends her free time hiking, skiing, and exploring the Green Mountains.
