Nate Bruce grew up in Hudson, Ohio. After graduating high school, he attended West Virginia University in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. While at West Virginia University, Nate was involved in Alpha Gamma Rho, was a member of the rugby team, and volunteered at the university farm. Nate found a passion for agriculture at West Virginia University and decided to continue his education at the University of Tennessee where he obtained a Master of Science in Agricultural Economics. In his time at the University of Tennessee, Nate contributed to several University of Tennessee Extension projects, and presented research at the 2017 Southern Agricultural Economics Association meeting. Nate will be serving Caswell County producers by helping goat and sheep producers, starting a master gardeners program, assisting horticulture producers, and helping with fertilizer and pesticide training. Nate has always been intrigued with the North Carolina and Virginia Piedmont region of the country with its strong agricultural history, rural pride, beautiful landscape, and changing seasons. The opportunity to serve the needs of producers in the Piedmont led Nate to Caswell County.
