Our team

David Low, Dominique Lahaussois & Pierre-Alexander Low


David, Dominique, and their son, Pierre-Alexander have a long and rich connection to Norfolk. They fell in love with the “Old Curtiss Farm” when their huskies discovered it one snowy afternoon. Since then they have grown Husky Meadows Farm into a thriving community based business. Their commitment to Norfolk and love of the arts is combined with their involvement in the Battell Stoeckle Estate, the summer home of Yale’s Schools of Music and Art.

Tracy Hayhurst

Culinary Director

Tracy’s career in food began as a farm apprentice in the late 1990s, followed by attending Ballymaloe Cookery School and co-owning Chubby Bunny Farm. Her passion for both farming and cooking brought her to her dream job here at Husky Meadows farm where as Culinary Director she curates experiences for guests to delve into all the joys working the land and sustaining ourselves around the table with a good meal amongst friends old and new.

Steve Archaski

Head Baker and Prepared Foods Chef

After several dinner parties where Steve shared his love of cooking traditional French food, wine and copper pots with his neighbors David and Dominique, an inspiration began to take hold here on Doolittle Drive. A garden was planted, heritage flint corn was grown for polenta and cranberry-pistachio biscotti soon won a loyal following. Now Steve manages our weekly prepared foods and bakes his sweet delights for our loyal farm stand and farmers market customers.

Rana Justice

Horticulturalist, Forager

Rana’s enthusiastic spirit is a positive influence on all the people and plants she comes across. She tends ornamental gardens and forages in forests throughout Northwest CT. At HMF she maintains our woodland trails, guides our foraging activities, assists with mushroom cultivation and keeps our spirits high. She is also very active promoting the arts in the northwest corner.

Adam Buggy

Farm Manager

Adam’s love of gardening, forests and wildlife defines who he is as a person. Besides leading the farm at HMF, Adam produces pure maple syrup, raw honey, eggs and log-grown mushrooms in his spare time. The experiences that are dearest to his heart are the smiles on the faces of those who enjoy the things he grows and produces. Adam is a graduate of the University of Hartford and in the Cornell University Small Farms Program.

Jaime Konopka


Jaime began growing food from a very young age on her parent’s property in Nepaug, CT. For her, the best part of coming to work each day is the life surrounding our gardens – it’s fascinating to take in the migrating birds, unique insects, and all the things that grow where human hands didn’t plant them. She hopes to establish a well-rounded IPM plan for the farm to control crop pests while protecting native biodiversity for years to come.
