John Straw bought a 36-acre farm in Carroll County after graduating High School and founded Poor Valley Farms. He had been around vegetable production his whole life and that was all he ever wanted to do. Pumpkins have always been his favorite crop to grow, so that is what he started out with. His new wife Bailey also works on the farm. Together, with John’s dad, they now grow peppers and cauliflower and are looking at other crops in the future.
