About Us


GAP Ready! Farm Services


Paula Manning, founder/co-owner

Paula truly brings it all to the table! From helping her father in the field to working for numerous tobacco companies, Paula is a jack of all trades.  After seeing the increasing rules and regulations being placed on the farming community, Paula saw a true need.  In 2015, she decided to pursue her dream of being a small business owner.  She welcomed her children, Leigh and Grayson, to the team in 2021 to assist even more growers.  Paula is an advocate for the Hugo community as she serves as Secretary of the Hugo Volunteer Fire Department. 

Paula lives in Hugo with her husband, Michael. 

Leigh Page, co-owner

A graduate of University of Mount Olive with both her Accounting and MBA degrees, Leigh Page is Business Manager and Co-Owner of GAP Ready! Farm Services.  Prior to joining the GAP Ready! team, she served the NC Community College  System for more than 10 years.  

Leigh enjoys life in Wilson with her husband, Tee, and children, Emilee and Beau. When she isn't doing site visits on local farms, she is most likely on a boat searching for the next big catch! 

Farming = Family

Grayson Shreves, Office Manager

Grayson, Paula's son, joined the team in 2020 to assist with the growing client base.  Grayson's role with GAP Ready consists of managing the day to day office operations and maintaining certain farm records.  After attending East Carolina University, he decided to join the family business to assist in the expansion. 

You will find at GAP Ready! Farm Services that our clients are treated more like family than customers. We truly take pride in knowing all of our growers and their families.  Our business was built with family in mind, including you, the customer.  Do not hesitate to call, text or email us with any questions you may have. 

We hope you join our GAP Ready! family today!
