Current Board Members
NC Farm School and agriculture in Davidson County are not the same without the passionate leadership that Jennifer(right) provides. She and her husband Ben Rosencrans(left) own Crossings Farm in Lexington, NC. We are proud to have her strong voice and kind advocacy on the NCFS board. Her agricultural knowledge, practical experience, and marketing expertise are huge assets to advancing NC Farm School for the purpose of serving farmers.
Amy-Lynn is the county extension director in Rowan County. She has been a proponent of agricultural business training throughout her career but has worked with local foods, horticulture, nurseries, greenhouse, forestry, landscape, and local farmers markets. NC Farm School’s advancement in mission and vision owes credit to her efforts at the county and state level. Without her efforts in team building and promotion, NC Farm School would not have the demand it does today. Photo Credit: Rowan Chamber

David Allen holds an MBA and has served as a police chief but more importantly has a pragmatic approach to agriculture that helps guide NC Farm School to serve and protect farming in North Carolina. Having benefitted from NC Farm School training he applied his skills to develop Tranquility farm in Mooresville, NC. David has gone on to pass his knowledge on to future farmers by teaching agricultural business at a local community college.
Greg currently serves as the president of the NC Farm School board. He holds an MBA and utilized NCFS training to develop a land management plan to keep family land in future production for agriculture. NCFS would not be the same without this strong advocate for farming and farm business training.
David Fogarty is the county extension director in Gaston County. As county director, he has focused key efforts in advancing local foods, horticulture, and community development projects. His steady hand has guided an NC Farm School program in his county as well as pooling the efforts of neighboring counties to train farmers with needed business skills.
Derek Washburn serves as the coordinator of the NC Farm School board helping to ensure board feedback is actualized into change in the NCFS programing.
