Meet the Directors

Welcome to our newest directors! 

 

Jason Baldwin - Jason graduated from Fresno State in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural education from the Jordan College.  While he did not grow up in agriculture, growing up in Madera and then attending Fresno State exposed him to technology, animal and plant sciences as well as economics.  After graduation, he worked for Logoluso Farms as a safety director which led to a position at Nisei Farmers League as a grower relations representative.  In 2000, Jason went to work for the Madera County Farm Bureau as the Executive Director.  He was recruited by Panoche Creek Packing as their Chief Operating Officer where he is today.

 

Fendley Ragland - Fendley grew up on a beef cattle farm in north Arkansas. He graduated from the University of Arkansas with a bachelor and master’s in agricultural economics.  Following graduation, he was an instructor in the Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Department at the University of Arkansas.  In 2014, he joined PGIM Real Estate Agricultural Investments in Memphis, Tennessee and has worked at the Fresno location since 2016. Since moving to the Central Valley, Fendley is actively involved in the community in organizations such as Ag One BBQ committee, California Citrus Mutual and as a co-advisor for the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity at Fresno State.
