While the land is owned and operated by Rob Maddox, there have been many great people
over the years who have helped bring nourishing food and fun times to the farm.
Here's a little background of the people who currently make the magic happen at Sun One:
Rob Maddox - Farm Owner
The Maddox family has been a fixture in Litchfield county for generations, with the farm land having been in the family since the 1800's. After getting an MBA in Business at UConn, Rob went on to various business ventures before entering local politics. He would serve several terms as a State Legislator before moving back into the world of green energy.
His passion for sustainable green energy has been a driving force in his career for years. He's served on the Green Building Council and been instrumental in helping develop green building and energy standards. When he inherited the farm land upon his father passing away, he took that same ethical outlook and applied it to the farm. He's never wavered in his commitment to sustainable, local, organic produce.
Katherine - Farm Manager
Born and raised in the East Bay region of California, Katherine has had a passion for food ever since she was a teen. In the summer of 2012 she decided to try her hand at organic farming, and spent a few months at the Small Farm Training Center out in West Virginia.
That is where her love of food, nature, and healthy living flourished; she knew she had found the path that was right for her. She traveled for a couple years working at a farm in Washington and WOOFing at others throughout the country before finally settling in Connecticut in 2015.
Always trying to enhance the quality and beauty of the farm, Katherine is the brains behind the Recipe of the Week that's been a hit with CSA members! When she's not farming, Katherine enjoys practicing and teaching yoga, knitting, reading, flow-arts, and watching cheesy dance movies.
