Judit Ender Provides R&D Leadership Role at The Chef’s Garden
Huron, Ohio ─ On February 15, 2018, Judit Ender of The Chef’s Garden specialty vegetable farm was officially appointed to the board of directors of the Ohio Vegetable & Small Fruit Research & Development Program (OVSFRDP). She was appointed to a three-year term running through 2020.
This program is designed to improve the profitability and marketability of vegetable and small fruit crops through research and development. The program provides funding for crop research to assist producers in developing new varieties and cultural practices to enhance the profitability of vegetable and small fruit crops.
“We want to congratulate Judit Ender on her appointment to the board,” Farmer Lee Jones says. “She will be taking over this crucial role just as my brother, Bob, Jr., will be completing his term, and we’re honored to be able to continue to contribute to such a vital program. Judit is so valuable at The Chef’s Garden, taking on leadership roles in our research and development initiatives, plus in greenhouse supervision and food safety.”
In a letter to Ender from the Ohio Department of Agriculture, Director David Daniels writes that, “It is our commodity boards and their members with their commitment to progress that help Ohio’s top industry grow.”
