Setting the table for this Thanksgiving program is the Buenrostro/Flores/Delgado family of the Meños Organic Farm: Manuel Buenrostro and Lupe Flores; their children Nelly Buenrostro, Luis Buenrostro, Ismelda Buenrostro; and their niece Jackie Delgado. Joining them later (minute 39:21) is family friend and farm employee, Miguel Esquivel. Their Riverside farm, in operation for over 12 years, is institutionalized at the local farmers markets, including the one nearest to the KUCI station at Mariners’ Church parking lot, Saturday mornings.
