Meet Mariel and Anthony Barreras of Barreras Family Farm!
“Military experience has taught me the importance of advocacy and collaboration – meeting others, learning from them, and supporting those who may not have a voice. Service is at the heart of our farm mission.”
At Barreras Family Farm, just a few miles north of Omaha, Mariel and Anthony along with their 8 children, work the land to bring fresh food and farm education to the community. Anthony is currently an active-duty U.S. Army soldier. He met Mariel while deployed in Alaska, where they spent many of their first dates hunting bears (hence the bear in their farm logo!). Anthony's military experience has instilled the fundamental values of their farm where service, respect, and integrity are integrated into daily farm chores and decision-making.
Barreras Family Farm is a member of Homegrown By Heroes (HBH) program, which is the official farmer veteran branding program of the United States. The HBH logo serves to inform consumers that products donning the logo were produced by military veterans.
Barreras Family Farm started with a only a few free-range chickens, but it has grown to include a plethora of farm products from pigs to honey bees. In addition to raising animals, the Barreras family is dedicated to education, offering youth summer camps and even a Rent-a-Chick program.
