We are the Bautista Family. Together we own and operate R&R Produce Family Farm in the Black Dirt Region of NY. We are a diversified vegetable operation focusing on bringing fresh produce to our community through farmers markets in New York City and New Rochelle. This grant will help us lease 85% percent of the land we need to operate and pay for transplants. The produce we grow will help us serve the Latinx community of which we are a part.
