Communications & Outreach

Deb Dramby joined our team in 2019, after six years at Willowsford Farm, a well-known agri-hood in Loudoun County, Virginia. At Willowsford, she built and co-managed a bustling Farm Stand, pick-your-own garden, a large CSA, and helped launch several farming enterprises including laying hens, broilers, pasture-raised pork and most famously, a herd of weed-eating goats.

Before production farming, her drive to learn about agriculture led her to the University of Maryland’s Institute of Applied Agriculture, where she graduated from a program for Sustainable Agriculture and played a pivotal role in the creation of the UMD Community Learning Garden. After the university allowed the use of Eco-Goats to clear the hillside that became the garden, she fell in love with the goats and their mission, became an apprentice, and eventually started her own herd, who are now retired but formerly operated as 56 Hooves.

Deb’s interest and ability to engage people in meaningful conversations about food and farming led her to Future Harvest. Through her role here, she hopes to meet as many farmer in the region as possible, connect them to additional customers and resources, and continue to serve the local food movement. You may also find her helping out at local farmers markets and/or finding ways to engage the next generation in agriculture.
