Matt Coyle joined PEC in March of 2020 as our local food systems coordinator.
Before joining PEC, he founded a local online food hub, The Fresh Harvest, which delivered fresh food from local farmers in the Piedmont to local health conscious consumers, supervised production at the nation’s largest soil-grown microgreens farm and was a cattle farmer at Lakota Ranch. Before becoming passionate about our local food system and agriculture, Matt worked in communities across the country as a community organizer, was an intern on Capitol Hill and served as a special assistant to the Mayor of Connecticut’s largest city. He attended George Mason University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in National Security Policy, was a writer for GMU’s Fourth Estate student newspaper and a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.
In his free time, Matt likes to cook, work on his small Dexter cattle farm in Culpeper and spend time with his wife, their hyper-active 2-year-old Australian Shepherd and their 4 month old daughter.
