Francisco Castro

Best known around here as “the fix-it guy”, Francisco currently has the longest running tenure on our yard crew since starting at BHN in 1992. Born and raised in Guatemala City, he went on to work there at Goldsmith Seeds (now Syngenta), a multinational flower seed company where he held a position as Field Manager during the 1970’s. Later, spending a year at a kibbutz, he honed his skills in Agricultural Machinery and Irrigation practices. As luck would have it, turmoil in his homeland (both social and seismic) brought him to the U.S., and to us. The rest is history.
