The Klug Family - Owners/Operators

JeffJeff and Sue started Roots Down in 2006 with their kids Mara and Neville.  As Production Manager, Jeff is the main man behind the delicious veggies on your plate – let’s just say that he doesn’t get much sleep during the growing season! Sue acts as Office Manager, which includes responding to your emails and writing our weekly newsletters. Mara and Neville love to help out with pest control by collecting “pet” tomato hornworms.

 Uriel Valle

UrielUriel comes all the way from Mexico City each season to work on our farm through the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program. A veteran of the Poinsetta industry, he picked up vegetable farming pretty quick, and loves digging “papas” (potatoes). He even hopes to start his own organic farm in Mexico someday! His hobbies include cars, graffiti, and helping Canadians pronounce “tomatillo”.
