Caitlin Taylor

Caitlin is the Managing Director of Stone Barns Center. In this role, she is responsible for the integration of rigorous agricultural research with cutting edge culinary innovation in service of transforming the food system at a regional scale. She has played a critical role with Stone Barns since 2019, spearheading future campus design plans and working closely with the Board to shape the strategy and vision of the next twenty years.

Caitlin is an architect, and prior to joining Stone Barns she was a principal at MASS Design Group and on the faculty at the Yale School of Architecture. At MASS, she built and managed the Food Systems Design Lab, drawing from her background in architecture, farming, and biochemistry to design projects across the food system. Caitlin studied Biochemistry at Wesleyan University and earned a Masters of Architecture at Yale School of Architecture. 

Caitlin and her family co-own and operate Four Root Farm in central Connecticut, a certified organic vegetable and cut flower farm. Experiencing the seasonal shifts of what it means to eat in conversation with a specific place is an essential and grounding force for all of her work in service to redesigning food systems.

On the side, Caitlin is a book collector and photographer, grows an ever-expanding garden of bearded irises, and loves fermenting hot sauces of all varieties. She and her husband and their seven-year-old son live on their farm, in a farmhouse that was built in 1693.
