Why I Farm


Wes Carlson

A Financial Advisor with Edward Jones Investments who has served clients in San Luis Obispo County for eight years. He has sat on multiple non-profit boards and provides community organization experience.


He has been involved with Firstfruits Farm SLO since 2013.

Life takes a village. We need people to share in the beautiful and joyful moments it brings us, and also the difficult ones. When suffering and loss and grief arrive at our door, we can’t bear it alone. And when we reach out to friends or family to help us through these times, we are agreeing to be connected to something larger than ourselves, which I believe is rooted in love and compassion.

That is why I am a part of Firstfruits Farm SLO. It is an act of defiance.

Pain and sorrow will not have the final say. So on those days when we see people weighted down by the world, we can come along side them, enter that space larger than ourselves, and say “I see you. I feel your pain. No, I can’t take it away, but I can offer you this produce, organically grown specifically for you. May this give you sustenance and remind the both of us that we are all in this together.”
