Introducing Catherine Sercer, our New Farm Manager:

Catherine is amazing.  She has worked on small farms in Washington State, driven trucks to farmers’ markets in New York, and worked on farms in North Carolina.  But she really wanted to be a farm manager not just a hand.   She hails from Ft. Scott, Kansas and graduated from the University of Dallas.  Catherine “interviewed" for Pat & Rachel’s Gardens manager by working last October for one month while living in Lawrence with her aunt.  She replaces Jane Leek who served as manager in 2017.  Her extensive knowledge of plants and her high standards of quality are much appreciated at the farm.  Did I tell you how hard she works?  She never stops and nothing seems to phase her.  You can see her artistic skills in these photos of the beautiful market displays she created too.  Look at the lettering.  We now sell our Certified Organic produce at both the Overland Park Farmers’ Market and the Brookside Farmers’ Market.
