Lee's One Fortune Farm
Lee’s One Fortune Farm is a family of local Hmong farmers bringing you a fresh taste of Asian fruits and vegetables. They grow specialty rice and vegetables not readily available to the local community. This small band of relatives work together in the traditional way, growing their own, for their own, as they have at their foothills farm for the last 40 years.
The elders have been subsistence farming for their entire lives, without the use of commercial fertilizers, so they learned to work with nature to create a fertile landscape. Through a lifetime of farming, the elders understand the necessary work required for sustainable crops and land management. They are seed savers, and many of the vegetables planted have been shared for several generations. Most of the crops are heirloom and have a unique flavor, revered in Hmong cooking.
Although the elders are imbued with this special knowledge, access to local farmers markets were challenging due to language barriers. In 2008, Tou and Chue started Lee’s One Fortune Farm to introduce their foods to the local market. They teach customers how to use the vegetables, and to showcase how their family has been growing the unique produce for generations. Lee’s One Fortune has become the voice of the elders (often very shy) giving them an opportunity to earn an income. Their impact in the local food scene has not gone unnoticed. With the community's support, they have been able to expand acreage for food production to meet the growing need of our region.
