Lucy Reese, Farm Manager

Lucy has been a part of DeLano Farms since its second year of production.  It was at DeLano that she realized her love of washing fresh veggies on a hot summer day, and her deep commitment to delicata squash.  She is a native of Iowa, where her family owns a small century farm with beautiful dark black soil.  She obtained a B.A. at Grinnell College, with a double major in Philosophy and Psychology, but, unfortunately, she never did learn to read minds.  In 2010, Lucy took a break from rural life and moved to Singapore with her husband to teach analytical reasoning and communication skills to children and adults.  The only problem with Singapore was that there were too few plants, so she is happy to be in Michigan, farming away, getting covered in dirt, and throwing worms at her employees.

Bronwynn Kelly, Assistant Farm Manager

I grew up in Kalamazoo and have recently found my way back. I went to Michigan Tech (Houghton, MI) where I graduated with an Applied Ecology & Environmental Science B.S. I absolutely fell head over heels for the Northern Woods and my soon-to-be husband! Why not head further North? So, we spent a year living in Alaska in a little log cabin. Believe it or not people do farm in Alaska and I was helping network farmers, farmers markets, and consumers to create a more resilient, food-secure system in Homer, AK.  It was awfully far away from family and I ultimately was won over by the warmer Michigan Summers. Last year, was my first year working at DeLano on the Farm Crew and I am deeply honored to be able to continue my work here as the Assistant Manager this year. I believe that nature and people are one-in-the-same and we have to remember how our lives connect us to the whole system.
