The summer is coming to a close. We’re only 3 weeks away from all of the broilers and turkeys being butchered and the summer interns leave on October 1.
It’s a bittersweet time here on the farm. We’ve made new friends and developed relationships that will last for a lifetime. We learned from them and they’ve learned from us.
On Tuesday, we had a fancy dinner at the Joshua Wilton House in Harrisonburg, VA as a culmination for all of our Apprentices, Summer Interns and day-to-day employees. As usual, Mark Newsome and staff and the Joshua Wilton House did a fantastic job on dinner. The food was out-of-this-world good and the evening was enjoyable, filled with reminiscing of summer and excitement for the future.
Here is a picture of the whole crew, not including Richard Morris – our delivery driver and Dan Solberg – our farm chef and gardener. We clean up pretty good, huh?
