About the Team

Peter Burrows, CEOCEO – Peter W. Burrows

Peter Burrows has more than thirty-five years of business executive experience in high-tech electronics, manufacturing, distribution and logistics, consumer-packaged goods and retail industries. He has been Chief Information Officer of two Fortune 500 multi-national corporations and served on the Board of Directors of both public and not-for-profit companies and organizations. He has won numerous business awards for innovation and advanced systems work. Peter's knowledge of marketing and sales, business finance, systems, logistics and process improvement, has prepared him well for managing the complex business of commercial farming and retailing directly to the public.

Peter's interest in farming goes back to his childhood in the suburbs of Boston. Growing up, he loved exploring the woods and pastures of his neighborhood, where one of his favorite stops was a local farm. Peter grew to appreciate the importance of preservation, especially in rural towns, after the fields and woods of his hometown were lost forever to suburban sprawl. Peter and his wife Regina passed on their love of the outdoors and gardening to their children, Meaghan, Sarah and Christopher, who enjoyed working in the family vegetable garden and taking care of their pet chickens. After Regina passed away in 2001, Peter and Christopher decided to combine their common interests in the outdoors and the environment and purchased the land in East Wells that is now the home of Brown Boar Farm.
