Katelyn grew up on a dairy farm in Walton, NY that is still operated by her family. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science and Agribusiness Management from Cornell University and her Master’s Degree in Adult Learning from SUNY Empire State College. She has previously worked for CCE-Chautauqua as the Farm Business Management Educator since 2014 where she developed programs to assist local farmers, including the LEAF (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop series. Katelyn operates Stoll Family Farm along with her husband and three young sons in Cattaraugus, NY where they raise diversified livestock and field crops. In her free time, she has a large garden and writes for the blog site “Her View From Home” on topics related to motherhood, mental health, and raising a family on a farm. She is looking forward to bringing personalized business management assistance to farms in the Southwest New York region and continuing to connect the agricultural industry to Cornell resources.
