Zach Wolf grew up in rural Northwest Connecticut, farming at Whippoorwill Farm and learning the ins and outs of cattle grazing and haying. After a degree in Biology from Columbia University, and research engagements at Aton Forest Ecological Research Station and The Earth Institute, he went on to manage the Field Operations and Direct the Growing Farmers Initiative at Stone Barns Center.
