Julie R Iferd

Head Grower

I was born in Dell Rapids, SD and grew up on a dairy farm. I traveled a bit after high school and received my education starting in Denver, CO then Fairbank, AK and finished with a horticulture degree from the University of Minnesota. I have worked for Catoctin Mtn Growers since September of 2002. My position is head grower. I have a passion for growing quality plants and a drive to grow plants more efficiently with high standards. I love everything about growing plants, starting in propagation and knowing that our finished plant will be enjoyed by the consumer. I have two kids, Luke 16 and Elizabeth 12. I enjoy baking, reading and the outdoors in my free time. Catoctin is a fantastic place to work partly because the owners believe in top of the line automation and tools to make our jobs easier and more efficient.
