Jeremy Compton joined the America’s Grow-a-Row staff in November 2014 as Director of Farm Management Operations. Jeremy was born in Flemington, NJ and at the age of 7 moved with his family to Wisconsin, where they became dairy farmers. After 7 years of dairy farming, the Comptons moved back to Flemington, and at the age of 17 Jeremy started working part-time at the Rutgers Snyder Research and Extension Farm in Pittstown. After graduating from high school, Jeremy began working at Snyder Farm full-time. He was responsible for maintaining all of the tree fruit research at the farm. In addition to collecting and analyzing all of the data, Jeremy planted, pruned, and trained all of the tree fruit. He also helped train and educate other commercial New Jersey farmers about different tree fruit techniques and methods. In January 2003, after 10 years of service, Jeremy left Snyder Farm to dedicate his full attention to Peaceful Valley Orchards.
