About Hannah

Hannah Smith-Brubaker is passionate about forwarding Pasa’s mission to cultivate environmentally sound, economically viable, community-focused farms and food systems. She fosters collaborative relationships with organizations that share that mission and ensures that sustainable farmers are represented in critical conversations with stakeholders.

Hannah runs Juniata View Farm, a pastured livestock farm overlooking the Juniata Valley in rural Pennsylvania. Her farm participates as a research collaborator in Pasa’s landmark Soil Health Benchmark Study and is implementing many agroforestry practices, including silvopasture, an increasingly important grazing strategy in the face of a warming climate.

Prior to leading Pasa, Hannah served as Pennsylvania Agriculture Deputy Secretary. She serves on the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) Soil Health Advisory Council and on Pennsylvania’s Governor’s Commission on Women, is an Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) senior fellow, and writes a monthly column for Lancaster Farming newspaper.

Hannah has testified before the U.S. Congress on organic and sustainable agriculture, with prior speaking engagements at the Wall Street Journal’s Global Food Forum, the White House Council on Rural Affairs hearings, and the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization Food Summit on behalf of National Geographic.
