lef farms names Mariana Robles to its management team

Coming off a very eventful summer that resulted in expanding distribution by adding Stop & Shop stores throughout New England and supporting medical first-responders during the pandemic with donations of a quarter of a million dollars in baby greens, hydroponic lettuce grower, Loudon, New Hampshire-based lef Farms continues its forward momentum by adding a new production manager to its mix.

Mariana Robles

“We’re so excited to add Mariana Robles to our management team,” Henry Huntington, lef founder, said in a news release. “As a 2015 graduate from the University of Los Llanos Colombia, specializing in Agronomy, Mariana brings with her some fresh, out-of-the-box thinking that we can’t help but benefit from.”

But Mariana isn’t a new face at lef Farms. With a passion for farming that brought her to the region in 2015, Mariana was eventually hired by lef in early 2018 to support its seeding line. Since then, Mariana developed into one of lef’s key team members, taking on additional responsibilities as food safety officer and cooler supervisor. As the company continued to grow, Mariana’s new position was created to provide more time for training, education, and coordination between different departments within the organization. As production manager, Mariana will be responsible for driving efficiencies, improving procedures and protocols, and increasing teamwork at Farm. 

“With expansion in our near future, putting Mariana in role of production manager allows the Farm to continuing its maturation process prior to pulling that trigger”, concludes Huntington. 

lēf Farms is a 1-acre hydroponic greenhouse growing facility located in Loudon, NH, producing nearly 1.5 million pounds annually of its Crisp, Smooth, Spice, and Fusion baby greens for New England.
