Marcella Juarez is a young farmer and rancher in Laredo, Texas. Marcella and her family are transforming the ranch that has been in their family for over 160 years into a modern and sustainable farm and ranch operation through the use of hydroponics, solar panels, and regenerative practices. It is their goal to provide healthy, local, and organic food that is grown responsibly to their community. Funding will be used to help relieve the personal financial pressure felt by small family farmers and ranchers, such as Marcella, who often utilize personal finances to support their operations. Funding will enable Marcella to take better care of herself, have more financial control of her future, and bring more joy back to farming as she pursues her dreams of feeding her community.
