Our team

Philo Ridge Farm was established by owners Diana McCargo and Peter Swift in 2012 in an effort to preserve the historic Foote Farm and continue the agricultural legacy of the property. Today, we are an innovative, diversified farm using ecologically-minded practices to produce pork, chicken, lamb, beef, wool products, certified organic hay, garlic, vegetables, fruits, and trials of small grains and flowers.

The farm is lead by Food & Farm Director Francine Stephens and Farm Manager Ed Pitcavage and has a growing, diverse and devoted team made up of Jane Engelman, Ian Johnson, Andrew Feinberg, Jamie Broe, Vera Simon-Nobes and our devoted market and farm crews. Support and business planning is provided by Bio-Logical Capital, a land investment and conservation company.
