Juan Perez, 18 | Sacramento

Coming from a family that worked in the fields, I never thought I would want to work in ag. Now, I’m starting a marketing agency to help companies, primarily in the hemp extract market, grow their online presence and build a marketing plan. FARMS Leadership helped me start this company by teaching me the skills needed to supervise and lead. And, most importantly, I was able to learn the stories of other ag companies around Salinas County, which helped me to believe that I also could start from the ground up.
