Robert Ganz is back on top again! After winning our First Peas to the Table contest in 2019, he was bested last year by then-11-year-old Reed Cabot, who was first to bring us a measured cup of fresh peas from her garden.

Now, at age 95, and blind, Mr. Ganz has captured the 2021 crown and sash, along with a gift card to the farmstand and a tasty dish prepared with his homegrown peas. Mr. Ganz raises vegetables with the assistance of his daughter, Claire, who helps him get around the garden safely. Watch for more of their crops at the Ag Fair in August!
