The Growing Season


"One woman's tenacious journey to escape poverty and create a billion-dollar farming business--without ever leaving the land she loved. The youngest of her parents' combined twenty-one children, Sarah Frey grew up on a struggling farm in Southern Illinois, often having to grow, catch, or hunt her own dinner. She spent much of her early childhood dreaming of running away to Hollywood, Chicago--or really anywhere with central heating. At fifteen, she moved out of her family home and started her own fresh produce delivery business with nothing more than an old pickup truck. Two years later, when the family farm faced inevitable foreclosure, Sarah gave up on her dreams of escape, and, at seventeen, took over the farm and started her own produce company there. Refusing to play by traditional rules, Sarah talked her way into suit-filled boardrooms, made deals with the nation's largest retailers, and became so legendary that the Harvard Business School published a case study on her negotiation skills. Today, Sarah's family-operated company, Frey Farms, has sold more than a billion dollars' worth of fresh produce, beverages, and consumer packaged goods, and has become one of America's largest fresh produce suppliers, with farmland spread across seven states. Thanks to the millions of melons and pumpkins she sells annually, Sarah has been dubbed "America's Pumpkin Queen" by the national press. The Growing Season tells the inspiring story of how a scrappy rural childhood gave Sarah the grit and resiliency to take risks that paid off in unexpected ways. Rather than leaving her community, Sarah found adventure and opportunity in one of the most forgotten parts of our country. With fearlessness and creativity, she literally dug her destiny out of the dirt"--

A Growing Season


Hailed by Booklist as “two talented authors who vividly bring to life the beauty of New Mexico and its people,” Sue Boggio and Mare Pearl return in A Growing Season to Esperanza, New Mexico, the setting of their first book, Sunlight and Shadow. Esperanza is a community at the crossroads where a devastating drought threatens the farming community’s very survival. Vultures circle in the form of developers who see failing farms as ripe pickings for a bedroom community for Albuquerque. Court battles pit the endangered silvery minnow against the farmers as the once mighty Rio Grande shrinks from its banks even as demand for its precious water increases.
