Farm Manager at Rigor Hill
Danny was born and raised in Queens and has always enjoyed a diversity of food from his Ecuadorian family and community. Growing up in the city did not allow for meaningful interaction with the natural world, but once he made his way to upstate NY for college, forest walks took over daily subway rides. After frustration with classroom and textbook learning environments, he dove right into hands-ons experiences in small-scale farming - a career path quickly unfolded! Upon finishing a couple seasons of working on leading farms in the northeast, he answered a job posting for Rigor Hill Farm and has been loving the direct & collaborative communication between farm and restaurant. Aside from eating good food, he loves spending time off the farm back home in the city, playing basketball, and spoiling Nori, the farm’s border collie.
