A beautiful photograph of Farmer Mary Hillebrecht of Escondido, California. Mary was profiled in December, 2013 (see “Meet the Farmers and Ranchers” page). She is a citrus and avocado grower, as well as an organizer of several successful farmers’ markets in San Diego County. You can see that her season is in full swing.
When you eat a juicy orange or some guacomole dip, think of Mary and other farmers like her, who grew it for you!
