Ray Tuegel (Co-Owner)

Ray is the resident data and equipment guy.  If you need something measured or calculated or repaired, Ray's your man!  With deep roots in beautiful Kansas topsoil (which he keeps reminding us is 20 feet deep!!), Ray draws on longstanding family connections to the soil.  His first crop as a child was Sweet William and he has graduated to garlic, raspberries and much more!  He worked with Los Poblanos Organics in Albuquerque, NM and Heidi's Raspberries in Corrales, NM to gain experience that he is applying here at Plum Granny Farm.  He's not bad with computers, either!

Cheryl Ferguson (Co-Owner)

Cheryl is the resident creative type -- please don't make her measure too much!  She is returning to her family farm to transition it from a tobacco-growing history to a new life as a vibrant organic farm.  Although she isn't too good at planting with a measuring tape, she still enjoys being out and getting covered in dirt and a hard day's work in the field.  Hoeing raspberries is much more fun than hoeing tobacco!

Ms. Mocha (Farm Dog #1)

Mocha RIP.  She really enjoyed her new life as a farm dog.  The. Best. Dog. Ever.

Gesti Dog (Farm Dog Trainee)

Gesti is trying REALLY hard to follow in Mocha's pawprints -- but they were very big ones to fill.  She wants to be able to help however she can...but mowing the raspberries may be a stretch.

Yam the Cow (PR Maven)

Yam RIP.  Yam was the best known cow in the county -- maybe even the state.  When we tell people where our farm is, they stop and say, "Isn't that where there is that really pretty cow?"  Yep, that's our Yam. We miss her a lot.
