FUTURE OF FARMING

The future of farming is providing communities fresh local produce grown for the community in a sustainable manner. Increasing yield in a small footprint allows us to get closer to the consumer. This not only reduces our carbon footprint, but also increases taste, nutrition and shelf life.

Keeping it all in the family, Mary Sue’s husband and Susan’s childhood friend, architect Josh Schweitzer, created the original designs of not only all of the Border Grill restaurants, but also the dishes, glassware, uniforms, and peppermills. The colorful murals are the work of artists Su Huntley and Donna Muir, inspired by the festivals, road signs, and advertisements of Mexico.
