Will O’Meara

Will’s farming roots go back to high school on Waldingfield Farm in Washington, CT, where he worked for a total of nine growing seasons, three of which as the assistant farm manager. During a brief hiatus in his stint at Waldingfield, Will received his bachelor’s degree in Sustainable Food and Farming from UMass Amherst, where he worked on the UMass Student Farm crew. In 2020, Will and his partner founded Hungry Reaper Farm where they grow vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers in Morris, CT. Will served on the Steering Committee of The New CT Farmer Alliance, a chapter of the National Young Farmers Coalition, from 2017 to 2023, finally serving as president from 2020-2023. Will continues his work with Young Farmers as a Land Advocacy Fellow in the lead up to the 2023 Farm Bill. In his home state of CT, Will is the Chair of the Farmland Preservation Advisory Board, sits on the Working Lands Alliance Steering committee, and serves on the Farm Service Agency State Committee. Will is excited to serve his agricultural community and carry out Land For Good’s mission in Connecticut.
