I have been growing vegetables and flowers for 7 years. I have an intimate knowledge of many different agricultural business models, as both a manager and employee. I am willing to work hard to build my business and know what it takes to put myself, and my products, out there to be successful. I have been growing the past two years in Northern Dutchess County and would love to build my business here.
