Born and raised north of Boston, Anne Riordan spent her childhood highly invested in music, horses, and athletics. After her undergraduate experience at Cornell playing lacrosse, Anne spent a year working at the Cornell Veterinary Labs and returned for a Masters in reproductive biology. During that time, she began visiting the farm at Cayuga Pure Organics and fell in love with the outdoor, physical work, involvement with the earth, and like minded peers at CPO. Her commitment to the farm led to her full time employment at CPO and leaving behind the opportunity of Veterinary School for her true calling in agriculture. Anne spent time running the processing station (the beanery) before moving into managing the fields. She feels blessed to have the opportunity to have met the amazing community at Cayuga Pure and loves her job. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch
