Meet the Farmers
Hernandez Farm is a beautiful example of a family run farm. It’s impeccable rows and abundant plants are cared for by Ruben and Maria Hernandez with the help of their eight children and their families (four generations!). Nearly every member of this large family lives within minutes of each other, and they’re all involved in maintaining the farm. Two of their sons, Gustavo and Heriberto, are learning how to grow produce in this climate from an expert–their father. Ruben has been farming his whole life. The skills he has developed are obvious in the lushness of the crops. The wide variety of produce that can be found at the Prescott Farmers Market from this farm is naturally grown without chemical pesticides or herbicides. Hernandez Farm is a gift to this community as it not just a source of naturally grown produce but also a space committed to the love of family.
