Farm News

This week we say good bye to our Packing Shed Manager, Jen. She has been with us for 3 years, taking care of everything in her office, the packing barn. This includes washing loads of dirt off beets to bring them to you squeaky clean, lugging thousands of pounds of potatoes from the truck to the floor scale to the cooler, organizing and keeping track of the contents of 2 walk-in coolers, packing the CSA boxes, organizing and washing market harvest, and everything else that needs done under that roof!IMG_4788

Jen has been patiently waiting to come off a waitlist for the Occupational Therapy Program at Sinclair for some time now and classes have finally begun for her. Additionally, she has also found related work in the field. It will be an adjustment not having her with us. It was so nice going into the farming season knowing that the packing shed was taken care of! We will miss her and wish her luck!
