Meet the Farmers
BLOOMING REED FARM
Juan and Keeton have farming in their blood. Juan has helped his dad, Fernando of Aguiar Farm, most of his life. After meeting Keeton in Oregon a few years ago, they married and began plans to start their own farm in Paulden. In previous years you may have seen them both at the Aguiar Farm booth, and in summer 2019, Blooming Reed Farm was official and they started bringing absolutely gorgeous flowers, vegetables and herbs to their own booth at the market.
Keeton has an artistic hand and created their logo, makes the cutest seed packets and even painted the front door to their greenhouse! Juan sits on the PFM Board of Directors and brings a lot of farming insight to the group. Both Juan and Keeton are fully dedicated to growing their thriving farm using sustainable practices. They are both proud that Blooming Reed Farm is a minimal-till farm. By not tilling their fields they aren’t bringing up dormant weed seeds or bothering the ecosystem underneath the roots which will hopefully lead to healthier soil.
