Hiram Ramirez
Farmer/Owner – Urban Gourmet Farms

Hiram is a Florida native who, after a tour in the US Navy, finally settled in North Carolina. He developed a passion for gourmet in his next 15 years in the fine dining industry but he always kept alive his dream of bringing something more to the table. In more recent years he experimented with cultivating gourmet mushrooms for personal use and quickly realized he should share the fruit of his labor with the community.
