Amanda Halter – Farm Specialist Liaison
Amanda is a born and bred Georgia Girl that loves to learn through travel, adventure and most importantly by making deep connections with her community. Rural life has always been a part of her roots. Growing up she would travel to her family farms throughout the south where you could find acres of corn, cotton, soy, peanuts as well as cattle, goats, chickens and a few pet cows too. This appreciation for the hard work and dedication it takes to be a steward of the land has always been a pillar on how Amanda would approach her journey in food.
She received a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Georgia with studies in Food and Nutrition, Food Science and Food Consumerism. Her career has covered quite a spectrum from restaurant line work, catering, product development and demonstrations, cookbook publications and most recently her 16-year career in Organic Grocery where she worked hard to build leaders and educate consumers on the value of our food systems and how we can work together to grow, sell and eat better.
Amanda is excited to be with the Carolina Farm Trust team and to be a part of the change in the Carolina food ecosystem that brings sustainable, nutrient dense, safely harvested food from the farms and into the hands and bellies of our community.
