Founder Earthbound Farm Carmel Valley, California

Myra Goodman

In 1984, Myra Goodman and her husband, Drew, founded Earthbound Farm on a tiny 2½ acre farm, which grew to become the largest grower of organic produce in the world. Earthbound Farm was the first company to successfully package pre-washed salads for retail sale. She and her husband are featured as a prominent biography in the Smithsonian Museum of American History for their role in bringing organic food to the mainstream. They were inducted into the Social Venture Network Hall of Fame as Environmental Evangelists and were recognized with the Organic Trade Association’s Organic Leadership Award and Global Green USA’s Corporate Environmental Leadership Award.
