Jenn Bassman
Communications & IT


Jenn Bassman is a marketing, communications and design professional, as well as a beginning farmer. Her family runs a 15-acre farm in Berkshire called Heritage Haus, where they raise Kunekune Pigs, Icelandic Chickens and grow a market garden for a 10-member CSA. 

Jenn also works for the New York State 4-H office and has been a life-long passionate supporter of 4-H and positive youth development in general. 

Running a farm, working 2 jobs and having a young daughter, Jenn does not remember what free time is, but she does enjoy classical Indian Dancing, horseback riding and making shrub when she can squeeze it in. In a former/earlier life she was an archaeological illustrator in Egypt where she dug in tombs and hung out with mummies, and still likes talking about it if you ask her.
