Two weeks ago we offered an opportunity to help and presented a challenge to you and our company. We knew we were going through our first shut down of processing to get some much needed maintenance completed. Erick and I have planned many projects on the farm. Ussually we get done about 50-75% of what we want done and put the rest off until later. This time everything was in line. The weather was perfect, the man hour projections right on, and the help presented it. Our employees did fantastic work. We logged roughly 40 hours of volunteer help which is just what we needed to push us over and get the jobs done. Thank you! Now we are ready for our grand opening, “Meat the Grower”. Some of you were physically able to help us with our projects; all of you have been essential to our business. Mark your calendars for May 13th so we can thank you for helping us get where we are today in support for healthful, local foods.
