After moving to a farm in rural Bucks County Pennsylvania in 2008, Megan decided to combine her career in television with her passion for sustainable agriculture and farm advocacy.
As the host of the NJ Fresh!, Megan visited farms and farmers markets throughout the Garden State while showcasing local chefs and sustainable agriculture. NJ Fresh! originally broadcast in 2010 on NJN and most recently on NJTV. A special episode on wine and winemaking in New Jersey was nominated for a Mid-Atlantic Emmy in 2011.
Megan has been member of Greener New Jersey Productions since its inception in 2011. Greener New Jersey Productions creates television, radio, web and educational videos on the “greener” side of the Garden State. The production company officially received its 501(c)(3) in June of 2012 and in September of 2012 Megan hosted the pilot episode of FRESH!
Megan’s passion for sustainable agriculture goes beyond television programming; she is a graduate of the University of Vermont’s Institute of Artisan Cheese and studied Cultured Dairy Products through Cornell University’s Dairy Program. As a certified artisan cheesemaker, she has hosted special events and fundraisers showcasing American farmstead cheeses. She currently works in the creamery at Double Brook Farm, a sustainable farm in Hopewell, New Jersey.
Megan is a member of Slow Food, The American Cheese Society, and The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA). She has participated in the WWOOF Program (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) and is a member in the US and Ireland.
Megan volunteers with the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFA) as a producer of media and video content; as well as a training seminar host and judge for Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association’s Pennsylvania Dairy Princess and Promotional Services.
Most recently, Megan was accepted as a member to the New Jersey Agriculture Society’s Leadership Development Program for 2012-2014.
