Carl is the owner of Smits Farms! Though some people wonder if he is real because he is not often in the main greenhouse, he is one of the reasons that Smits Farms has grown to the size it is at today! He does everything from editing meeting agendas to planting to crop placement planning and everything else we need done. Outside of work, he enjoys reading, biking, playing games with his family, and cliff diving.
Lauren started here in March of 2002, babysitting the Smits kids and soon moved to working in the greenhouse. Now she does so many things here including watering, planting, and working in the office and farmstand. Outside of work, Lauren enjoys playing volleyball and softball and keeping up with her garden.
Randy is our janitor. He works behind the scenes to keep our greenhouse, lunchrooms, shop, and bathrooms clean. He also is in charge of buying the donuts for donut day! Outside of working here, Randy enjoys working at Park Press and playing with dogs.
