Mark Hodge

Florida

Mark Hodge farms alongside his brother, Brad, and his parents on their fourth generation family farm founded in 1919. They grow 1,200 acres of watermelon, blueberries, and additional products in central Florida. The entire Hodge Farms operation is a family affair, from tilling the fields to managing business operations and accounting. They also employ 70 highly-skilled team members to assist with crop harvest and management during peak season.

Fun fact: Mark and his wife, Crystal, are parents to daughters Devan and Danielle, and sons Dillon and Preston (twins). They help out with the family farm.
