Katey VanKerkhove

Farm Manager at Rigor Hill

Katey grew up in Rochester, NY and made her way into farming by working & living at diverse farms. Some of her favorite farm experiences include bringing snacks to the pigs (while avoiding getting toppled over) and listening to the turkeys gobble on a crisp autumn day, right when many of the season's best crops are ready. Working at Rigor Hill Farm has been a fun and creative process, one where she gets to constantly experiment and learn new ways of growing plants. She looks forward to continuing learning the land at Rigor Hill Farm and building more productive &  beautiful growing spaces. Off the farm, Katey enjoys exploring the area’s hiking/walking trails, art museums, local breweries, and, of course, taking Nori along everywhere!
