Abby has been deepening her relationship with the land and the creatures that belong to it since she was a child spending summers on her grandparents’ farm in the upper Midwest. After completing an undergraduate degree in philosophy, she realized that her work in the world needed to be tactile rather than theoretical. Rooted rather than ethereal. And what better way to root oneself in one's environment than to cultivate sustenance from the very ground? Abby brings to Codman over ten years of livestock stewardship experience, a fundamental commitment to attentive care over agenda, and a whole systems design perspective.
When she is not farming, she can be found weaving baskets, writing stories, practicing yoga, making art, cooking large communal meals, and investigating little nature mysteries.
After transitioning from education to agriculture in 2020, Aimee started her farming journey working with cut flowers and livestock in Western Massachusetts. Growing up on the West Coast she was always outside, camping, gardening, and exploring. Finding agriculture felt like a homecoming for her outdoorsy spirit. She’s excited to continue her journey at Codman, working outside and tending to the needs of the livestock and the land.
In her free time, she enjoys adventuring with her dog Misha, traveling, eating good food, and doing all sorts of crafting.
