Meet the Farmer

Joseph and Far

Far Chin Par and Joseph Thang are originally from Chin State in Burma. They came to the United States in 2009 and have been with the New Roots program since 2012. In 2014, they were able to buy a house in KCK and began growing Burmese crops in their backyard, while continuing to grow other vegetables at Juniper Gardens with the New Roots program. In 2015, Far and Joseph graduated the New Roots program and expanded their garden at their house. They were able to plant fruit trees, flowers and a variety of vegetables! Joseph and Far are very creative and are always looking for ways to improve their business. Come visit them at the market they’ve sold at for years in Liberty, MO!
