A Job Well Done and the Season’s End

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?

    Sweet post, Sheri! What a special evening…. 🙂

  2. I finally have a few minutes of my own after returning home from your farmer intensive. Wow what a phenomenal event! Thank you for all you have taught me. I hope to be able to scale it down to my 10 acre farmlet with almost no rain in the summer. The California foothills are practically a desert in summer. I am excited, inspired and have much more knowledge. I forgot to get the recipe for Brie’s incredible mayonnaise and can’t find it in the blog. Can someone ask her to send it to me please?!!
    I want to bring my other sister and husband out for a 2cd intensive next year!! The staff is unbelievably wonderful!!!

    Sheri, I;m not sure of where to post this question but Pattie’s Comment made me think of it again. Is there a way to link up Farm and Farmette’s of similar weather, topography etc, to exchange idea’s? I am also in California an would like to adapt Joel’s concepts to my ranchette, without repeating mistakes that others have made. Thanks, Shelley
