Ryan Gates

Operations Manager, Aldermere Farm
Department: Stewardship

“If it hadn’t been conserved, Aldermere Farm would have been subdivided and the landscape permanently transformed. Now people in the community enjoy the expansive views and the opportunity to be part of a working farm. Plus lots of people don’t realize that we harvest and sell hay and provide educational and other resources to local farmers!”

Ryan is responsible for managing hay operations and taking care of the equipment and buildings/grounds at Aldermere Farm. “I could be fencing one day, working on a tractor the next and working on a barn the day after that,” says Ryan—and he likes it that way.
