Pat Wood

Director of Procurement and Customer Fulfillment, 4Earth Farms
“Believe it or not, I grew up as a kid who hated to eat vegetables…unless they were French fries! Back then I never could have predicted that I would join a little specialty produce company called MCL with just eight employees that would grow to be 4Earth Farms with over 400 employees. I am grateful for all of our customers who put their trust in us to provide delicious fruits and vegetables. The past 23 years in this business have been an amazing ride.”
“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.”
