Olivia Alpert

Communication Manager

Born in Jacksonville, FL, Olivia spent the early years of her childhood in Cape Town, South Africa, before relocating with her family back to the United States. Growing up in Lebanon, TN, she has always appreciated the natural beauty of her home state. While studying Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina Asheville, she worked as the Social Media Editor for her university’s student-run online and print newspaper. Her hard work and dedication earned her an honor of excellence for collegiate Social Media Journalism in North Carolina. After getting her degree, she continued her work in communications, public relations, and social media marketing. 

Olivia is the biggest animal lover and treasures her relationships with family, friends, and coworkers. You can find her listening to true crime podcasts, cooking for her family, creating makeup videos, and singing along to whatever’s on the radio. Her goals while working at Caney Fork Farms are to spread the message of regenerative farming, build stronger relationships with customers, and boost her community’s access to healthy, local foods through online and in-person engagement strategies.
