Seth and Liz Ulmer are part of a new generation of farmers connected to Furmano’s. In 2001, they purchased an 800-acre farm that was founded in 1852. Seth is a third generation farmer learning his trade by growing up on the family farm.
Seth has been growing tomatoes for Furmano’s since 2001. He grows tomatoes to diversify his crop mix. He operates Furmano’s state-of-the-art tomato harvester, collecting crops for all the growers in the Lock Haven region.
Today, Seth and Liz live on the farm with their three rescue dogs: Lia, Jackson and Gator. Gator only has three legs but has no trouble keeping up with the others. Liz loves to cook and uses Furmano’s tomato products. Her favorite recipe can be found below.
Farming requires ingenuity and perseverance. For instance, taking advantage of available resources, the Ulmer Farm’s crops are irrigated from the nearby Susquehanna River. And when rain threatened this year’s tomato planting, Seth continued late into the night using the planter’s headlights. The Ulmers are one of Furmano’s trusted family farms.
