May 26, 2005 Phoenix, Arizona - Thirty-five years ago, Trent Johnson was born in Phoenix into a farm family that raised cereal crops. At age six, he was already learning how to drive a tractor. Twenty years ago he began working for Brooks Farms which leases several thousand acres of land. One of Brooks Farms' fields is leased from Swift Transportation, a large trucking company. That field is near 75th Avenue and Buckeye Road. Two other fields next to each other run from 67th to 72nd Avenues north of Lower Buckeye Road and are owned by a Utah company called "Property Reserve Arizona LLC." Mr. Johnson has been foreman and farm manager of Brooks Farms since 1997.
