Meet Our Team
My name is Jamie and I am the 4th generation farmHER here at SpringDell. I was lucky enough to inherit this little plot of land in January of 2009 at the age of 22. I have actually spent my entire life here! I graduated high school in 2006 and went right into business with my family. College really did not excite me, but the farm sure did! I have a son named Briar who turned three in January. I love this farm and I love growing and producing GOOD & HEALTHY food for my neighbors. My biggest role model was my Grandfather, Gerry, and I was lucky to spend a lot of my life with him out in our fields. My favorite job in the spring is working in the greenhouses, while my favorite job in the summer is cultivating the fields with my 1948 Farmall Cub! And every Saturday, like clock-work, I work the Farm Stand because I love seeing and chatting with all the customers I work so hard to provide for. My favorite crop to grow is strawberries (our most famous crop), but my favorite crop to harvest is kale, and I do not really know why. I served a term on the American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer & Rancher Committee in DC and currently serve on the Agricultural Commission here in Town, because I love advocating for my industry!
I even have a claim to fame...I was featured in a few National Magazines and the Farmers' Almanac and I even have a lipstick color named after me, thanks to a local company based out of Maine. Besides doing the whole farming thing, I LOVE to cook and create exciting meals in my kitchen! And while I think of myself as a great cook...I am actually not real great at baking. My favorite hobby is riding my Morgan horses which I have been doing since I was two. I tend to be the one running our social media pages, but I also get some help from just about everybody who works here or who is a frequent face in the Farm Stand.
I really appreciate your following of our page and the support you give to my family farm. My family is able to continue on with this place because our neighbors support us. You play just as big of a role in the life of this place as the farmers that work it. So thank you!
