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.
David Camacho, Field Manager
David was raised on his family’s vegetable farm in Zacatecas state, Mexico and has been our field manager since 1993. David is responsible for field production of our crops, such as ensuring that crops are well nourished, sufficiently irrigated and properly harvested and distributed. David and his wife Sylvia are the parents of four children. His son, David Jr., also works at the farm.
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.

Marguerite Heap, Office Manager
Marguerite Heap was born and raised in Hawaii and moved to New Jersey 14 years ago with her family. She and her husband owned and operated a deli and catering business in Princeton for many years before switching gears and opting to have more family time. She loves fishing, boating, gardening and reading. She has two daughters, two cats, three dogs and numerous other critters at her own “farm.”
Marley Skinner, Pennington Assistant Farm Manager
Marley Skinner, a Rutgers graduate, is responsible for training and managing interns, some field management, including direct seeding, and record keeping. She's also responsible for greenhouse management and transplanting schedules and also for coordinating pick-your-own flower and herb plantings and maintenance. She worked on the Student Sustainable Farm CSA at Rutgers for several seasons prior to starting her own farm business, Wooden Hill Farms in Pennsylvania, with a couple of partners.
Chip, 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. In April of 2013, Chip was joined by Jamie, another shepherd mixed breed who is a farm dog in training!
Jamie, Junior 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 Jim’s preferred canine companion on the long trips to pick up supplies in Lancaster, PA.
