Farm Staff

Jim Kinsel

Jim Kinsel, General Farm Manager

Jim Kinsel had worked on several farms throughout New Jersey before striking out on his own in 1991 as a tenant farmer. He is now the owner of two permanently preserved farms and farms two others as a tenant. Jim has a degree in mathematics, which he does have the opportunity to dust off now and then on the farm. In organic farming, Jim enjoys the challenge of working out solutions to the pressing problem of how we choose to interact with the natural world in our most fundamental relationship - through the food we eat and where it comes from.

Sherry Dudas

Sherry Dudas, Farm Manager

Sherry came to the farm with over 10 years of conservation and farmland preservation experience, and is responsible for managing the farm's marketing and promotion, special event planning, community outreach and related farm business and land use planning activities. Sherry is also editor of our newsletter and website. Jim and Sherry were married in 2005. When not farming, Sherry is busy adding to her extensive collection of Jerseyana, reading, walking the farm dogs and writing.

Emily Kinsel, Greenhouse ManagerImage title

Emily is excited to return to the farm after having earned a master’s degree in sustainable agricultural development from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and Montpellier SupAgro in France. Her previous work at the farm inspired her to study organic pineapple and cashew farming in Togo, West Africa, for her master’s thesis. Emily is also the volunteer/gleaning coordinator at the farm, and can be emailed at emily(at)honeybrookorganicfarm.com. When not on the farm, you can find Emily walking or biking along the Delaware Canal, strumming her mandolin, or reading in a cozy coffee shop.

Amy Scheiner, Membership Coordinator

Image titleAmy recently moved back to the area after 3 years of living on the West Coast. She is a big advocate for CSA organic farming, not only for the community and environmental benefits, but for the health advantages as well. As someone who has struggled with numerous health factors for the majority of her adult life, she finds that organic produce has been indispensible for her healing journey. When not at Honey Brook, she can be found traipsing around the world, writing in cafes, and hanging out with her orange tabby cat, Bernie Sanders. Email her at service(at)honeybrookorganicfarm.com with any membership questions you may have.

Chip the farm dogChip, the Farm Dog

Chip is a mixed border collie/German shepherd who is responsible for rodent and Canada geese control on our farms. He has a sweet disposition (unless you're a ground hog!) and loves to lick everyone he meets.  He also loves to munch on collard and kale stems, super-ripe persimmons and our carrots, although his vet has advised that he go easy on them as they are high in carbs!

Jamie, Junior Farm Dog

Jamie the farm dog

Jamie joined the farm in April of 2013 after being adopted by Jim & Sherry from a no-kill shelter. We believe he is a cattle dog mix, and he loves to chase the Canada geese off our farm fields, a valuable skill as the geese damage our crops. He is as cool as a cucumber on road trips, making him Farmer Jim’s preferred canine companion on long trips. Jamie goes bonkers for sardines and yogurt!
