Hannah Smith-Brubaker guides our work, fosters relationships with organizations that share our mission, and ensures that sustainable farmers are represented in critical conversations with stakeholders.
Prior to joining us as Executive Director, Hannah served as Pennsylvania Agriculture Deputy Secretary. As Deputy, she focused on agricultural markets and economic development, farmland preservation, and the charitable food system.
Hannah with her partner Debra Brubaker and family operates Village Acres Farm & FoodShed—an organic produce and pastured-poultry farm in Juniata County, PA.
Hannah brings to us more than twenty years of off-farm experience in nonprofit education, community development, business administration, and a proven record of working with the full diversity of agriculture, insisting on inclusion and open dialogue.
