Maine Coast Heritage Trust officially welcomes Heidi Baker as our new Aldermere Farm General Manager on January 15th. Heidi first joined MCHT in 2006 working in the Farm Hands youth program, as well as the 4-H Club. In 2013 she became Aldermere’s Herd Manager, a position she holds until stepping into her new role. Heidi brings nearly 20 years of farm-related experience and a love of working with young people.
“I am thrilled to assume the role of General Manager at Aldermere Farm and to continue the legacy of Aldermere’s prized Belted Galloway herd and as a place that is integral to the local community. I look forward to the opportunity to work with MCHT’s great team, and to managing the operations at Aldermere and also at our nearby Erickson Fields Preserve. It is an honor to do this work—supporting agricultural education initiatives and community programs that benefit local farmers and those who live here."
