Executive Director Hannah Smith-Brubaker comes to PASA having most recently served as Pennsylvania Agriculture Deputy Secretary. As Deputy, she focused on agricultural markets and economic development, farmland preservation, and the charitable food system.

No stranger to the PASA family, Hannah with her partner Debra Brubaker and family, operates Village Acres Farm & FoodShed - an organic produce and pastured poultry farm in Juniata County. Lifetime and Permanent Business members of PASA, Village Acres has been in operation for 35 years, 25 of which have been organically certified and nearly 20 of which have involved year-round community supported agriculture.

Hannah brings more than twenty years of off-farm experience in nonprofit education, community development, business administration, and a proven record of working with the full diversity of agriculture, insisting on inclusion and open dialogue.

Hannah is excited to help PASA build on a firm foundation of community partnerships, for, as she states, “what makes PASA special as an organization is its focus on people and the desire of its members to share their knowledge and experience.”
