Margaret Duriez - Owner
Margaret was born in West Palm Beach and grew up in Florida and on a family farm in Pennsylvania. After graduating from university, she became increasingly interested organic food and sustainable living. Margaret and her husband Franck are vegetarian as are their four children. Margaret began looking for a property where they could start growing their own food. When the opportunity arose to buy a property in Loxahatchee, she took it. Two years later Seth and Ron joined the team and Lox Farms was born. The farm went commercial and started selling fresh local produce to the community and providing education about sustainable farming.
