Meet the farmers
We are Max and Kerry Taylor, and we can’t wait to be your farmers! We have over 10 years combined experience growing healthy, whole, natural foods and are thrilled to be able to share our expertise with your family. We are the next generation of farmers at Woodbridge Farm and we look forward to growing for you!
Max was born and raised outside of Chicago IL, a mighty long way from a biodynamic farm in Southern Connecticut. Despite that, his path to Provider Farm was pretty direct. Max attended Umass Amherst where he met, courted and married sustainable agriculture. Max worked on a few farms in western Mass before landing at Riverland Farm where he worked for three and a half years. It was through Riverland Farm that Max met Kerry and the rest is history as they say....
Kerry comes to Provider Farm with five years experience growing at Brookfield Farm, a large vegetable CSA in Amherst, MA. She grew up in Providence, RI and spent her childhood attempting to grow plants in her beloved shady backyard, inspired by her grandfather's gardens. After graduating from Mount Holyoke College, she caught the farming bug when she worked at Pomykala Farm in South Hero, VT for a season. After completing her term in the Peace Corps in Togo, West Africa, she was inspired to pursue her love of farming and has never looked back.

Larry Manire has had the life long dream of having his own farm. He is also the father of Kerry and we are lucky to have him around. For the past five years, he has been working once a week at Brookfield Farm with Kerry and learning the ropes. He is the original do-it-yourselfer and is handy at just about any project. He is ready to roll up his sleeves and fix everything we break armed with his non-stop can-do attitude.
