Poverty Farms

Poverty Farms This is a family based garden hobby where we put good use of everything we raise. Born in 1953 and raised in a Horticultural Family, I really didn't take an interest in gardening until the late 80's.

Growing flowers and trees made my home beautiful but I was still starving. In 1989 I started my vegetable garden growing peanuts, which my mother loved, Squash, Zuchini, corn, tomatoes, peppers, beans and onions. I wasn't starving anymore but, I found I had to do something with the abundance of produce. I first started boiling peanuts and using the tomatoes, onions, peppers and garlic to make TOPG sauce. Over the years I have continued to experiment with different varieties of peppers, tomatoes and okra for canning. In 2009, with the help of my good friend David Wray (deceased in 2010), we came up with the name Poverty Farms ( hard times had hit us both). This was also the year we started canning pickled eggs. Keeping David in mind and with the support of the Randolph Family, we will continue to produce canned foods for everyones enjoyment.


I would like to express my appreciation for all the support from family, friends, customers and so on,,,
I have been thinking since my relocation to Minnesota, maybe PF should retire. Poverty Farms was built on an idea developed by myself and my Dear Friend, David Wray R.I.P and continued with an Especially Helpful Friend, Lacey Terrell. Since their departure from my life I have lost interest in this project, but will always hold their memory close to my heart! These two friends saved my life! I will forever miss them! I have Pickled Eggs promised (running late of course) and they will be delivered. This page will be removed in the near future.

Thank you,
Paul Randolph


OFFICIALLY, AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, POVERTY FARMS HAS RELOCATED TO BEAUTIFUL MAPLE GROVE MINNESOTA. I felt the need to introduce my HOT salsa and spicy pickled eggs to the population here that could use a little HEAT. The transition is starting off slow but hopefully by mid summer, I will have a customer base established. The Northerners just don't have the taste for "Pickled Eggs" like the Southerners!!!


I first found an interest in mechanic work about 1969 and continued learning about engines, cars and trucks until I started my career in 1985. I would have thought with all the money and time I have spent on employment, education, tools, shop equipment, my garden and canning etc., I would have held or used every kind of tool imaginable. But today, I experienced a brand new tool. I can't remember seeing one in Tennessee!


If anyone finds a source for red ripe jalapeño peppers, please pass the info back to me. It seems I am experiencincing a shortage for another year.
