Farm Staff

Jim Kinsel

Jim Kinsel, General Farm Manager

Jim Kinsel had worked on several farms throughout New Jersey before striking out on his own in 1991 as a tenant farmer. He is now the owner of two permanently preserved farms and farms two others as a tenant. Jim has a degree in mathematics, which he does have the opportunity to dust off now and then on the farm. In organic farming, Jim enjoys the challenge of working out solutions to the pressing problem of how we choose to interact with the natural world in our most fundamental relationship - through the food we eat and where it comes from.

Emilyn Fox, Greenhouse Co-ManagerImage title

Emilyn is excited to be a Greenhouse Manager at Honey Brook Organic Farm as she enters her 6th farm season.  She went to the University of Vermont where her course work in environmental studies highlighted the importance of a strong and sustainable local food system.  After she graduated in 2011 she thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. During her hike she stayed at a hiker hostel that also had a small organic farm.  The lifestyle she found there inspired her to stop talking about sustainable farming and actually do it.  When she finished the trail she found her first farm internship and has been farming ever since.  When she is not farming she can be found hiking, cooking, traveling and spending time with friends and family.

Chip the farm dogChip, the Farm Dog

Chip is a mixed border collie/German shepherd who is responsible for rodent and Canada geese control on our farms. He has a sweet disposition (unless you're a ground hog!) and loves to lick everyone he meets.  He also loves to munch on collard and kale stems, and adores our carrots, although his vet has advised that he go easy on them, as they are high in carbs!

Jamie, Junior Farm Dog

Jamie the farm dog

Jamie joined the farm in April of 2013 after being adopted by Jim & Sherry from a no-kill shelter. We believe he is a cattle dog mix, and he loves to chase the Canada geese off our farm fields, a valuable skill as the geese damage our crops. He is as cool as a cucumber on road trips, making him Farmer Jim’s preferred canine companion on long trips. Jamie goes bonkers for sardines and yogurt!
