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.

Sherry Dudas

Sherry Dudas, Farm Manager

Sherry came to the farm with over 10 years of conservation and farmland preservation experience, and is responsible for managing the farm's marketing and promotion, special event planning, community outreach and related farm business and land use planning activities. Sherry is also editor of our newsletter and website. Jim and Sherry were married in 2005. When not farming, Sherry is busy adding to her extensive collection of Jerseyana, reading, walking the farm dogs and writing.  She was appointed to the Burlington County Agriculture Development Board in 2019.

Chip the farm dogChip, the Farm Dog

Chip is a mixed breed. He loves to munch on collard and kale stems, super-ripe persimmons and 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!
