Welcome Jose Gallardo Farms to St. Mary’s


Jose Gallardo is one of the newest farmers who graduated from the Farmer Education Program in 2010 and learned about the program while working at ALBA. Jose has collected a lot of farming knowledge and is well versed about farming locally. He can tell you the most interesting secrets to grow crops in a fine manner and about mechanics to repair farm machinery. His plan for this coming year is to fully dedicate himself to the 1.5 acres to build his success, get more land and keep investing in the farm business.

Jose will be at St. Mary’s every Sunday morning from 8:30am–12:00pm. Please stop by to visit him to see all that he has to offer!
