Noah grew up on Alprilla Farm. As a kid, he worked in the vegetable garden with his parents and helped out with haying. He got a job at Appleton Farms in Ipswich the summer after graduating high school and found himself hopelessly addicted to farming. After studying sustainable agriculture at Hampshire College, a season of solo market gardening and an apprenticeship at Butterworks Farm in Vermont, Noah started Alprilla Farm in its current form with his friend Ford Tucker Smith in 2011. He's the resident welder, grain nerd, and soil whisperer.
Sophie grew up on a small family farm in central New Hampshire where she gardened, made hay and raised several pairs of oxen. After studying Environmental Studies at Vassar College, she tended a market garden for a couple seasons and visited farms around the world before joining the Alprilla crew in 2013. She helps manage the CSA, keeps an eye on the beef herd and is the resident ox teamster.
