Jeremy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped double my local fruit processing business.
Hi, my name is Jeremy, and I love Sustainable Farming. Growing up in central Texas on a property that was Native American Settlement, harvesting wild plants, fishing, and finding arrowheads initially got me interested in Nature. I learned early on that relationships between land and people are essential for prosperity and health, and I fell in love with veggie-gardening and preparing my own food at an early age. After working at a gardening center in Austin and studying Ag at Texas A&M, I moved to Hawaii when I was 20 to learn about tropical farming and discover my niche in the fruit industry. In 2015 my family purchased an established 6-acre Mango Farm in North Kohala that I’ve had the amazing opportunity to care for over the last 5 years.
