Stephanie became CFF's first employee in 2014 and has been the Farm Administrator ever since. She holds a Communications degree from Millersville University and worked in Marketing before the farming world presented itself the opportunity of a lifetime. She is involved in all aspects of CFF except the actual farming, although she isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty! She handles everything from accounting to placing equipment and seed orders, to onboarding new staff, vendor negotiations and more.
Amy has been Tony’s partner, in business and at home for more than 32 years. She devotes her time at CFF to working with the staff to develop the “public” face of the farm. Amy also works closely with Tony and the team to continually test and hone their mission and add to the various types outreach CFF performs.
As a boy in South Philly, Tony loved to visit his uncle’s small farm in Lower Bucks County. He dreamed of farm life. As an adult involved in philanthropy in Philadelphia, Tony saw firsthand the frustrations involved in trying to help educate and feed our city’s most vulnerable populations through traditional channels. In 2013, his wife Amy showed him a property where she thought they might move; Tony saw a way to directly to help provide excellent food to those who need it most, educate young farmers, students, and the public and help the environment by practicing sustainable growing techniques. Carversville Farm is the realization of his dream.
Craig has been livestock manager at CFF since 2016, raising the farm’s animals using rotational grazing methods that are best for them, the land, and the people who eat their eggs and meat. After earning a degree in History at the University of Michigan, Craig farmed at The Farmers Museum and founded Skate Creek Farm, where he developed his skills in modern grass-based, organic livestock production. He founded the livestock program at the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in 2004 and, after a dozen years overseeing the multispecies livestock there, he’s glad to be raising a diversity of healthy animals in tandem with a diverse and healthy ecosystem to help fulfill CFF’s mission.
