Teena's Pride Farm Grows Heirloom Tomatoes The Florida Way

Michael Borek.jpg

Teena's Pride is a farm deep in South Dade that grows heirloom tomatoes, which means the seeds have been passed down for generations and no genetic modification has taken place. Pictured above is Michael Borek, he runs the place. The farm was passed down to him from his mother and father. At one point his mom, Teena Borek, after the untimely death of her husband at the age of 24, was one of very very few -- perhaps the only -- female farmer in Dade.
