About us

Who We ARE

R&R Produce grows diversified vegetables on 20 acres of some of the most fertile "black dirt" soil in all of New York state. Our main crops are curly kale, serrano peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beets, carrots, onions, and squash. We sell our products through local farmers markets and to restaurants in NYC, which is about 1.5 hours away.

We decided to start the business after many years working as farm workers on other farms. We used to cut lettuce and plant onions for 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week for minimum wage. We wanted to start a family and knew that we weren't earning enough money to do that. So in 2007 we made a decision to leave our lives as farm workers and start our own business. We named the business after my son, Rogelio Jr., who we hope will take it over someday.

We were hit very hard by Hurricane Irene in September 2011. Our farm lost 90% of its product and we had to shut down the business for the rest of the year. It took three full years to get back on our feet, but finally last year we we're back to being profitable. We are now expanding into new wholesale/restaurant markets which allows us more time to spend on the farm and with my family as opposed to traveling to the city every day.

Our not-for-profit Grand Market exists to build community, bring quality food to our neighbors, help small food producers and protect the region’s farmlands. R&R Produce, a regular presence at the Grand Market since we began, is an example of why we exist and why we need your support.

Rogelio and Yesenia Bautista operate R&R Produce, their small family farm in the fertile “Black Dirt” farming area in Orange County. In 2008 with the help of GreenNYC/Cornell Cooperative Extension’s New Farmer Program, which educates, and supports aspiring farmers with agricultural experience to establish their own economically and environmentally sustainable small farm, they grew from farm workers to farm owners. Training the next generation of regional farmers helps keep farmland in production and strengthens rural communities, farmers markets and the region’s food system as a whole.

"I enjoy the moments when my children are with me, harvesting vegetables, washing vegetables in the markets and meeting new people."

REGILIO's Story

I grew up in Puebla, Mexico in small town called Chila de las Flores. My grandparents were farmers and I remember helping them plant corn, tomatoes, and peppers. Mexico was changing a lot back then and I left for the United States when I was a teenager to live with one of my uncles and to look for more consistent work.

When I got to the USA, I moved in with my uncle and started a job on a farm planting onions 6-7 days a week. It was hard work, but I liked being out in the field. I met my wife Yesenia on that farm. She was working in the packing house and I was working in the fields. We got along right away and were married 2 years later when we were both only 18. We had our first child, Rogelio Jr., within the same year. We both worked on the farm for four more years, but realized that the minimum wage was not enough for us to support our growing family.

We liked the idea of continuing to work outside and on a farm, but wanted to earn our own income and not be paid minimum wage. So we started our business by renting a small piece of land and selling our products at a farm stand on the side of the road. It was fun to have our own customers and grow our own products. But starting a small business as an immigrant was difficult because there were many cultural things that were different about the United States and we were young and didn't really know how to run things. We had support from many people and continued learning things that worked and didn't work.

Eight years later we have passed over a lot of barriers and we feel much more knowledgeable about running a small business. Our dream is to continue to make our business more efficient and profitable and for our children to take it over in the future.
