Meet Us

Elan:

Rumor has it that Elan holds the state watermelon-eating contest title.

 

Elan's interest in growing things took off while he was in college. He spent time doing research in a plant biology laboratory as well as working in the field of climate change and food security. These experiences helped shape his view on food, culture, and society. It took 7 years and lots of travel, but Elan is now more excited than ever to be working on the farm in Corrales. 

Aaron:

Aaron keeps his daily burrito intake to around 2.5. Anything below that for him is child's play.

 

Aaron's interest for growing things began when he was in elementary school. He eventually started a small vegetable garden and by the time that he graduated from high school he had decided that he was going to be a farmer. The garden quickly grew (no pun) into a half-acre of mixed veggies. Every year since then, Aaron has picked up new pieces of farming equipment as well as new pieces of land. He now oversees over 5 acres of outdoor and indoor vegetable cultivation.
