Agronomist, Grimmway Farms
“Beneficial insects play an integral role in protecting our crops. We promote the insect populations that Mother Nature has given us to help support a healthy ecosystem. I’m contributing to the next generation. The more we can expand organic farming, I think the better it is for human health and soil health.”
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
