Meet the Farmer

Lee Meh

Lee Meh grew up in Burma and moved to the United States in 2009. She is a part of the Karenni community, and has five children. Her favorite vegetables to grow are chilies and eggplants, selling at the Lee Summit Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. Her favorite part of farming is that it gives her a chance to be outside and work with the soil.
