Lisa graduated from Cal Poly in 2013 with a degree in Agricultural Business. Hired as an intern at Talley Farms, she instantly made herself indispensable, helping in the office on the sales desk, in the fields, packing Fresh Harvest boxes in the coolers, and helping promote at many of our Fresh Harvest events. Once summer was over Lisa’s dream of staying local came true and she was hired on full-time. When not at work she enjoys spending time outside riding horse, hiking, or going to the beach.
