Environmental Policy and Management
Jesse Voremberg hails from New York City, but his work in agriculture consistently pulls him out of the concrete sea. Jesse graduated from Hamilton College in 2015 with a B.A. in Economics and Philosophy. His path into farming started with a yearlong livestock apprenticeship at Glynwood in New York's Hudson Valley in 2017. Following a seven-month foray into whole animal butchery, he switched gears and put on a white collar. He spent two years working for Happy Valley Meat Company, whose mission is to improve the lives of the people and animals that feed us, where he spent most of his days talking to chefs about why they shouldn't use commodity meat. Since 2018 he works part-time for Local Farms Fund, a community impact farmland investment fund. There he uses his experience working within the local food system to spread the word about the work LFF does for farmers, their communities, and land. When not talking to people about meat or impact investing, you can find Jesse in the rock climbing gym or at the movies. Jesse will be specializing in food systems and sustainable agriculture. While his professional work advanced environmentally and socially sound practices, he plans on using his degree in policy to impact broader change in American agricultural communities and the neighbors they feed.
