Support a local farmer all while supporting women in agriculture at Sweet Girl Farms! Owner Liset Garcia used farming to get back on her feet after she was involved in an accident in 2019. "I had no business plan to make this my livelihood," she said. "However, when the pandemic hit in March 2022, the need for local produce exponentially grew and Sweet Girl Farms popped off without a local community and slowly beyond to our country, region, state and nationwide." Try one of her delicious produce or pick flowers (when in season) for yourself or someone special, or purchase homemade honey, salsa and more!
