Tom and Kristin founded Fable because they wanted a source of healthy, nutrient-rich food for their own family that was free of harmful pesticides. They felt you shouldn’t have to go out to a restaurant to see beautiful pink watermelon radishes, or to taste delicious, nutty sunflower shoots that pack some crunch. With this in mind they created Fable to provide local residents, restaurants, and grocery stores with fresh, healthy, and locally grown produce. Tom is also a Producer for HBO, Westchester Growers Alliance Board Member, Friends of Muscoot Farm Board Member, and Green Ossining Sustainability Partnership Honoree.
Assistant Farm Manager
Grace graduated from Salve Regina University and helped establish their Hydroponic Club which grew to include over 40 members. She is currently growing flavorful herbs and lettuces in Fable’s greenhouses alongside beautiful and delicious microgreens. She believes sustainable agriculture requires passion and commitment and is excited to continue in this field by contributing to Fable’s mission to be a year-round local source of sustainable, healthy produce.
Farmer / Head Chef
Amber is a New England girl, born and raised. She’s been cooking for almost as long as she can remember and has loved food for just as long. She is a registered dietitian, a trained chef, and an aspiring farmer. After completing her undergraduate degree she was accepted by Rush University Medical Center in Chicago to study clinical dietetics and completed her dietetic internship. Although the graduate program was clinically focused, whenever possible she chose projects that allowed her to work in the local community. Her thesis research analyzed the relationship between household food availability and socioeconomic status. In 2016, she earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Dietetics and became a registered dietitian. Aside from farming the land at Fable, Chef Amber cooks for our new monthly Greenhouse Dinners.
Strategic Planning and Development
Mary spent many happy years as a social worker and department director at Green Chimneys Farm and Residential Treatment Center where the healing power of animals and nature is used to help children grow. She left Green Chimneys to raise a family with her husband, Paul. Mary has since been able to use her management skills to create and enhance programs in line with her passions. She directed projects at several residential treatment centers for children, developed and refined procedures at Solar City, launched and supervised garden programs at two local elementary schools. In her spare time, Mary guides hiking groups and plays with her family. Mary is thrilled to be a part of the fantastic team and mission of Fable, where all good things are rolled into one!
Sales and Distribution
Bill joined Fable in the summer of 2019 and brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from prior positions in the food industry including Account Executive for Bimbo Bakeries as well as Area Sales Manager for Coca Cola in nearby Elmsford. He handles distribution for the farm as well as connecting with local restaurants and chefs to help promote the healthy, local, and organic produce. After working in the city for several years Bill craved the country life and moved to Connecticut. He is an avid vegetable gardener and now practices square foot gardening in raised beds. His interest in agriculture comes from his Grandfather who was originally from a farm in Illinois. Photo coming soon.
Market Associate / Farm Intern
Ashley is a Business and Geography major graduating next May. She plans to continue her graduate studies in Environmental and Wildlife Conservation. Ashley has developed a further interest in these fields while at Fable, helping in our greenhouses, market, and around the farm.
