Emily J Freed

Emily plays in the dirt professionally as Regional Production Manager at Jacobs Farm/del Cabo, Inc. where she helps manage over 500 field acres and 1.25 million square feet of greenhouse space for organic culinary herbs, edible flowers and vegetable production.  She is also the owner and founder of Farmer Freed, a culinary salt blend company that features local, seasonal and organic ingredients from farms along the California Central Coast.  Emily is particularly proud of the Sababa Salt blend, as  $.36 from every jar sold of Sababa Salt supports Jewish female farmers via Farmer Freed’s "You Grow Girl" program that empowers women to farm organically and sustainably within a Jewish agricultural context.  She is also an adviser for Modular Science which builds robots in order to make food production healthier for humans and the environment.
