Description

Hello! My name is Morgan Wilson. I grew up and currently reside in Suffield, CT where I worked from the time I was able to walk on my family's farm, Chestnut Farm, which is now owned and operated by the Suffield VOAG program.

My experience in agriculture began predominantly in growing field crops (tomatoes, squash, pumpkins) progressed to field hand in broadleaf tobacco and then ultimately to my current and full time position as Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Rosedale Farms and Vineyards in Simsbury. I also help oversee another 60+ acres of sweet corn, tomatoes and other crops with a high sales volume farm stand and CSA program.

The last five years I have begun raising rabbits for meat and show. I am looking to pursue my passion for livestock and field crops while remaining as close to my roots as possible.

I hold two B.S. degrees from the Florida Institute of Technology in Marketing & International Business with a minor in Sustainability. While maintaining full time employment at Rosedale Farms & Vineyards, I also am a licensed Real Estate Agent in Connecticut & Massachusetts . In addition, I have been building/maintaining websites and social media for local small businesses through my company, GentTrend Enterprises LLC.
