Ken Phan Farm
Ken Phan’s family has been in the farming business for over 20 years. Ken specializes in Vietnamese herbs but as his quality is becoming more recognized, he’s branching out to provide American herbs as well. He grows more than 50 varieties of herbs on his farm and he and his family work nearly around the clock the two days before market day picking and bundling, so you can be sure you’re getting the freshest herbs possible. He farms naturally without chemicals and says he can’t afford to use chemical sprays and fertilizers even if he wanted to use them.
Ken works seven days a week, but he says the hard work pays off in the security his farm brings for his family. He came to America from Vietnam in 1989 in search of a better life, but it is hard to find reliable work here. Farming means he can be in control of his own business. He and his family members work hard to keep this small family business thriving.
