As a mother, a wife, and a dedicated female farmer, Blandon’s journey into agriculture began during her childhood, shaped by the time she spent with her parents in the fields.

With her husband, Ever Blandon, by her side, Maritza’s passion for farming only grew stronger.

Together with their three kids, they transformed their farm into a thriving family operation, embracing sustainability and innovation every step of the way.

 Despite facing numerous challenges, from unpredictable weather to pests and diseases, Maritza’s resilience knows no bounds.

Today, Maritza’s story reminds us of the power of passion and perseverance.

She stands as a shining example of the indomitable spirit of women in agriculture. Let’s salute her dedication and unwavering commitment to feeding our community!
