King Grove Organic Farm
Hugh Kent, and his wife Lisa, own and operate King Grove Organic Farm in Central Florida where they grow ROP certified organic blueberries and develop farm machinery, including patented non-chemical weed control technologies. He is one of the many organic farmers in America whose businesses are increasingly threatened by the USDA’s failure to administer the National Organic Program as intended, and to enforce its own laws as written. This is resulting in replacement of soil grown organic production with plastic-based hydroponic growing systems. Hugh has a BA in Economics from Tufts University and a JD from The Cornell Law School.
