The Hunt Hill Farm Trust, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating love of land, food, and the arts, has a new director.
Kate Vengrove, of New Milford, was named this week as interim director to replace Liba Furhman, who stepped down as executive director in April.
Vengrove is expected to oversee the fundraising, programming and strategic planning for The Silo at Hunt Hill Farm, in the Northville district of New Milford.
“We are thrilled to have Kate lead our team here at The Silo,” said Scott Mulhare, Hunt Hill’s treasurer. “She has a wonderful background of experience, as well as a broad knowledge and passion for all things that encompass who we are—music, art, cuisine, and community. It’s a fresh start here at 44 Upland Road, and we welcome Kate’s vision and enthusiasm as we usher in a new chapter for The Silo.”
Vengrove previously served as the director of the annual fund and special events at Forman School in Litchfield.
