Our Staff

Henry Corsun
Founder and Coordinator

Henry founded Good Food Farmers with partner Sara Querbes and several farming peers in 2014 and has managed the endeavor ever since. From deliveries to ordering platforms to bookkeeping and member correspondence, Henry has done it all and keeps on doing. In addition to GFF, Henry and Sara own and operate Dog Wood Farm and Rock City Mushrooms. He is excited to be part of creating a more regenerative food system from farm to table and are grateful to all who choose to participate with them.

 

Henry has always been passionate about the outdoors – from building forts as a kid to going on regular outdoor adventures with pups Harry, Tate, and Scout. Hi passion for food and farming arose out of the realization and first-hand experience from West Africa to the Hudson Valley that agriculture has tremendous power to help shape the future – to restore our environment, to fight for social justice, and to build resilient local economies. Henry brings these passions to work each and every day and is full of hope for what the future could look like.

Dan Andresen
Operations and Logistics

Dan joined the GFF team in June 2017 and has been instrumental in operations ever since. You may recognize him knocking on your door each week for deliveries, though he also works hard behind the scenes organizing logistics and packing out orders. In addition to his work with GFF, Dan is part of the team at Dog Wood Farm and Rock City Mushrooms where he helps tend to the grassfed beef cows, pastured poultry, and indoor-cultivated mushrooms. There is no task too small or problem too big that Dan isn’t willing to take on. His passion for building community and spreading joy through food is what drives him to help make GFF – in his words – “awesome”.

 

Dan lives with his wife Vienna and their two dogs, Abigail and Clover, in a 220 square-foot tiny house that they built. His two greatest passions in life are music and the outdoors; if he is not at home fiddling with a guitar then you will most certainly find him hiking a trail to the nearest peak.

Zach Bain
Marketing and Sales

Zach joined Good Food Farmers in January of 2019 and works to make sure our story is being told and that folks who share our passion for good food can find and join us. He is originally from the Boston area, and worked at a few tech start-ups before he made the plunge into agriculture several years ago. He sincerely believes that good food can save the world, and is thrilled to be a part of an organization that is trying to change the food system for the better.

 

In addition to helping grow Good Food Farmers, he grows vegetables at Dog Wood Farm. When asked what his favorite crop to grow is, he will quickly tell you: “Cover crops!” Cover crops are plants grown to “feed the soil,” and Zach is passionate about growing great vegetables by improving the soil. He’s also passionate about draft power on the farm, and can’t wait to share pictures of his team of oxen with you all on our social media accounts.

 

When he’s not farming, Zach is most likely lying on the floor with his dogs, learning to play mandolin, hiking, or trying to get his partner, Meg, to play a complicated board game with him.
