Bringing the Radio to the Farm
Owen Salerno, Suzie’s Farm
Hi, my name is Owen Salerno. I’ve been working at Suzie’s Farm for two years. I’m originally from Pennsylvania. Prior to working at Suzie’s Farm I actually worked in radio here in San Diego for about seven years. With the change of the economy around 2010, I was out of work and looking for something to do.
I came down to the farm and took a tour with my girlfriend and absolutely fell in love with the farm itself which is what led me to want to work here. About a month or so after that I started working at the farmer’s markets for Suzie’s and doing farm tours and have grown here with the farm since then. Now I handle marketing and communications among a handful of other administrative tasks. I have no farming experience, but I do come from a very food focused family background. In an Italian family, food was always super important to us.
