Alumni who produce food in Maine

Nicolas Lindholm '86 sets up his stand at the farmers market in Blue Hill, Maine. Lindholm grows organic produce on his Hackmatack Farm in nearby Penobscot.

For some Bates alums, contemplating food is a career choice. There are restaurateurs like Deborah Hansen ’86, chef-owner at Taberna de Haro in Brookline, Mass.

There are conceptualizers like Susan Reid ’79, a cookbook writer and baking instructor for King Arthur Flour, and Dorothy Donovan Lagg ’82, a senior scientist for a major food manufacturer.Andrew Knowlton ’97 is the restaurant editor at Bon Appetit magazine. Mark Winne ’72 and Alan Hunt ’03 are food-justice activists.

Then there are the Batesies who contemplate food at a fundamental level: They grow it, brew it, bake it. Meet 10 who choose to do so right here in Maine.
