After attending the University of Massachusetts-Amherst with a B.A. in Political Science, John went back to his roots and spent time living in Italy where he worked at a variety of farms and homesteads. While overseas, John realized agriculture was extremely important to him and he wanted to continue the lifestyle within the United States. Upon his return John spent two years working at local farms within central New Jersey where he improved his skills and techniques for growing organically. Having grown up in Titusville, New Jersey, his opportunity to farm in Lambertville was serendipitous. In his spare time, John enjoys public radio, mushroom hunting, getting lost in record stores, playing guitar, and a competitive game of disc golf.
Rolling Hills Farm was named in the 1980's when it was an ostrich farm and when residents of Lambertville would skate on the pond in the Winter. Today we raise vegetables, herb, fruits, and mushrooms on the land generations past lived on.
