Meet the Farmer

Busu Meh

Busu Meh is originally from Burma and is from the Karenni ethnic group. Originally from Burma, her family grew rice, pumpkins, hot chilies, greens and had many animals. She moved with her brother and parents to the United States in 2009. Her father, Poe Reh, works tirelessly in the field, while Busu Meh handles all of the farmers markets and customer interactions. Their family bought a house when they graduated the New Roots program in 2016 and are growing on a half acre in their backyard. You can find them at the Overland Park farmers market, selling a variety of vegetables!
