Jon is the livestock manager at JSF. He spends most of his days moving fence lines to rotate pastures for our chickens, pigs, sheep and cattle. The chickens love Jon so much that this winter, one of them crawled into his jacket and laid an egg! Jon came to Jericho Settlers Farm from Long Island, where he and his partner Karin ran Sunset Beach Farm. There, they grew vegetables and poultry for three years. They moved up to Vermont to look for their own farm, which they have recently purchased through the Vermont Land Trust just outside of Barre. They are still thinking of a great farm name!

Jon went to school at Green Mountain College, which was where he fell in love with both Vermont and Karin. He grew up both in Sag Harbor, NY and Australia.
