The Frank Martinez Story
Growing up in the back of a truck, following crops with his farm-worker parents, Frank Martinez appreciates all that he’s achieved. His father always told him “Behind fear, you will find success.” And success he found.
Through hard work and dedication, Frank was able to achieve his dream of becoming a potato farmer and owning his own land in Warden, Washington.
