Lao Xiong Farm
Lao Xiong started his farm in 1995, but he grew up in a family of farmers in Laos so has a lifetime of experience. In 1980 he and his family immigrated to Wisconsin and he went to technical school and worked in an office job, but after moving to California with his five children in 1993, he returned to his farming roots. His children still help out on the farm when they come home and he has cousins who help him sell at the market.
Lao Xiong likes farming because when he is surrounded in nature, his worries disappear. He feels good being close to the land. His loyal customers love his stall because the vegetables stay cool in his shady location. Customer favorites include okra, peanuts, and his sugar cane stalks which are available after October. His produce is high quality and you can tell he is a farmer who loves his land and takes pride in what it produces. His personal favorite of his selection is his unique and flavorful tomatoes, so be sure to try some when they are in season.
