We envision a world where local grain economies that are
good for people and good for the planet can thrive.

Emily Cayer

Northeast Grainshed Alliance
Program Coordinator
Emily grew up knee-deep in the streams, swamps, and lakes near her home in Amherst, Massachusetts. Exploring the woods on her horse, and studying turtles and frogs, evolved into a career as a biologist and conservation program coordinator in Montana for over 20 years and as a Threatened, Endangered, and Diversity program coordinator with Alaska Fish and Game until 2018. Her work bringing traditional cattle ranchers, non-government organizations, and state and federal agencies together with the common goal of saving a native Montana fish, was the highlight of her career. This opportunity instilled in her a passion for bringing people together for a common cause. After 24 years in the west, she returned east, to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont – and lives in a small cabin on a 300-acre sugar maple mountain with her partner and her dog. She loves to be outside, hike, fish, read and bake bread. 
Her work with the Northeast Grainshed has been incredibly rewarding and she is looking forward to bringing her enthusiasm and experience to help the wonderful, hard-working, and passionate farmers, processors, bakers, brewers, distillers, educators, and researchers working together to revive the Northeast Grainshed.
