Carla and David McDowell are owners of McDowell Farms Salsa. This family owned and operated agri-tourism business is located in Germantown, Kentucky - population 300.

McDowell Farms Salsa began after the sudden death of Carla's mother, Doris McCormick. She instilled a love for the lost "Art of Canning."

Carla was one of Kentucky's first Home-Based Microprocessors under HB391. She acquired her commercial certification at Ohio State University in March of 2004.

She was named one of Kentucky's 2004 entrepreneurs of the year by the Governor's Office of Agricultural Policy.
