Juliette Enfield started working for New Entry in 2018 and brings expertise in extension education, agriculture, entrepreneurship, and community development. Juliette holds a bachelors degree from Longwood University in psychology and a master’s degree in horticulture from New Mexico State University. While at New Mexico State University, she evaluated different types of passively heated high tunnels for production of leafy greens. Prior to receiving her master’s degree, she worked as a farm hand on hydroponic and organic vegetables farms in Massachusetts, New York and New Mexico. Juliette has also been a beekeeper for several years.
Juliette has done extension education at home and abroad. She served in the Peace Corps in Togo, West Africa where she taught villagers entrepreneurship skills as well as techniques to prevent erosion and deforestation. In the U.S., she worked as a Penn State Extension Ag Business Educator where she delivered top-quality adult education to diverse audiences in the agricultural sector. She worked as a part of a small statewide team to write and teach curriculum on agricultural business management, planning, and succession.
During her career in agriculture, she has worked with dozens of farmers through extension and on farm jobs and has cultivated a deep understanding of the challenges that farmers face as well as the opportunities that exist for farmers and for agriculture in the U.S. Juliette is excited to be a part of New Entry Sustainable Farming Project to help bring interested people into agriculture. As the Curriculum Coordinator for New Entry, Juliette creates and delivers educational materials for anyone who wants to develop or improve their farming skills.
