At the time, the seed industry was male-dominated, says Beth Benjamin, a horticultural advisor at Renee’s Garden who has worked with Shepherd since her early days. Benjamin recalls attending industry conferences with Shepherd, who insisted on tasting broccoli, beans, or other vegetables in the field, while male executives either stood on the sidelines or went golfing.

Shepherd has written two cookbooks, organizing them by vegetable so that growers can have multiple recipes at their fingertips during a big tomato harvest, for example. International growers seek her out, Benjamin says, looking for new varieties “that Renee might like.” And she’s appeared in countless YouTube videos—a petite, pragmatic woman in her straw garden hat, interviewed by experts who are eager to tap into her deep knowledge.
