Meet the Crew

Theresa Allen

Theresa Allen, the Farm Manager, is the brains and womanpower behind the Farm. When the Farm was first created, courtesy of the Duke Endowment, she ran the farm as a one-woman show, which involved everything from plowing, planting, cultivating, weeding, harvesting, packaging, crop planning, budget management, and everything else imaginable to run the a farm. Every year, the Farm’s production has expanded and more students are getting involved with the Farm under Theresa’s supervision. She works tirelessly every day because of her dedication to providing local, clean, and healthy food for Davidson.


Behind Theresa Allen is a crew of hard-working students and graduates. For the past several years, in addition to students, interns have been hired to help manage the Farm.
