Eduardo Rivera

Sin Fronteras Farm & Food
Farmer
Minneapolis, MN
Mario Eduardo Rivera is a 2017 Stone Barns Exchange Fellow. Eduardo is originally from Zacatecas, Mexico, and has lived in the United States for 24 years. Eduardo grew up farming with his grandfather and felt disconnected from the land after moving to the United States. It wasn’t until he had his daughter, now six years old, that he was able to reconnect with the land and his childhood agricultural experiences. Eduardo graduated from high school in Arizona, where he also attended community college. He has held a variety of positions in education, cleanroom medical production, restaurants and construction. After relocating to Minnesota, Eduardo worked at Mississippi Market and Seward Community Co-op, and connected with Latin@ community organizing and outreach nonprofits. Currently, Eduardo is the owner and farmer of
 Sin Fronteras Farm and Food, where he grows organic and hard-to-find vegetable varieties. Sin Fronteras Farm and Food’s CSA provides Latin@ families with boxes of culturally appropriate vegetables for 18 weeks each summer. In the future, Eduardo would like to create an incubator program for young farmers of color.
