Paul from Mexas Farms is a a true jack-of-all-trades! From his menagerie-like farm in Princeton, Texas to his copper sink business with family out of Mexico, Paul does it all! The name Mexas farms is a combination of the words “Mexico” and “Texas.” After spending so much time in Mexico, Paul wanted to keep a bit of it with him. Mexas Farms has a chicken coop, a few sheep, goats, dogs, guinea hens, and of course, crops!
Every morning Paul wakes up at 4 a.m. to start researching his next crop. He loves experimenting with different plant varieties, soil types, and is working on a sweet irrigation system. Paul is even working on growing pretty red corn for us. But it’s not regular corn you might eat on the cob- it’s popping corn! We can’t wait for Fall!
Right now, Paul is growing onions, tomatoes, asparagus, squash, corn, peppers, and elephant garlic. Remember those beautiful (and tasty) garlic scapes from the past few weeks? Those were chopped off the top of the elephant garlic, so the plant can focus all its energy on developing the garlic below the soil. Check out the photo below- Paul’s 1,000 lbs of elephant garlic will be huge!
