MimoMex Farm. June 2011

A few Just Food staff had the chance to go out to Orange County a couple of weeks ago and visited our fab farmers, Martin and Gaudencia. They have shared some of the pictures that they took that day.  MimoMex is looking amazing! Alright people, who is ready to help organize a trip/workday out at the farm some Sunday in August….
