From making salads with lettuce grown on a rooftop to running his own organic vegetable and herb service, Mike Saraylian is the man behind Harvest To Home. Mike’s business comprises garden boxes and raised beds planted with seasonal organic produce and planted to the customer’s specifications. His self-sustaining boxes and beds require no watering, weeding, or fertilizing.
A southern California native, Mike Saraylian was born and raised in Laguna Beach, where he spent most of his time on the beach. After attending UC Santa Barbara, he came home and worked in the camping industry, eventually becoming a manager. He moved on to Blick Industries in Laguna Canyon and worked in sales and marketing, where his job involved traveling around the U.S. and Europe. In Italy, he was amazed by the brilliant flavors of a simple salad made with perfect tomatoes and freshly picked lettuce, dressed only with oil and vinegar. Mike had loved to cook since he was a child, and after his Italian epiphany he found himself thinking about everything he was eating, developing an interest in health and diet. Every Friday at Blick there was a company barbecue on the rooftop. Mike always made the salads from the 70 boxes of garden produce grown right there on the roof by a retired doctor, Myron Wacholder, who was the father of one of the employees. The doctor became his gardening mentor.
Mike came up with the idea for his organic produce business, inspired by those boxes on the rooftop. Although he knew about sales and marketing, he had no clue how to start a business. Mike was influenced by his boss, John Blick, who said that if you really want to, you can do anything. Mike had some money saved, obtained a little more from his family, then taught himself every facet of business from designing a website to accounting and operations.
In the beginning, he found himself building planters and shoveling dirt. He ate what he grew and lost 15 pounds in the process, but he became addicted to freshly picked vegetables and herbs and hopes you will too. He is filled with passion and energy for what he does and has grown his business like his vegetables: with care.
