Joining the agriculture and stewardship team this summer as an intern for the livestock program is Kevin Breen. The internship, in its first year, is modeled after the apprenticeship program offered through the Foundation’s Ecosystem Farm. Kevin has always had a strong interest in sustainable agriculture and enjoys working with livestock and being outside. A Gaithersburg, Maryland native, he’s seen the landscape change from rural to suburban over the years. He’s shown cattle while attending a farm college and has experience working on several farms. He is looking forward to continue to learn more about the inner workings of a farm, especially farm management. His ultimate goal is to one day run his own farm and produce healthy food. Until then, he will be working here at the Accokeek Foundation, along side Polly Festa, to learn about heritage breeds and livestock management. So, the next time you visit the barnyard and see a young fella in a cowboy hat, stop and “howdy,” and give Kevin a warm welcome!
