My Excuse is…

So I feel like I need to explain myself, since my parent taught me not to make excuses.  It is simple really, I got engaged!  Eric Barth, Polyface apprentice manager, has had my heart in a constant struggle since I came to Polyface May 31st, 2011.  On July 13th, 2013, he asked me to marry him!  Of course I said yes!  So right now my life is full with normal farm work, spending time with Eric, and planning a fall wedding! 🙂

I thought that I would share our story over the next few weeks, if you all were interested. 🙂  Until then I will be continuing to pinch myself, because I still can’t believe sometimes that I get to marry the man who far exceeds the “man of my dreams”!

About Leanna Hale

Leanna Barth, born and raised in NC, first came to Polyface in July 2010 to attend one of the Intensive Discovery Seminars. She loved it so much that she applied for an internship position and was accepted for the 2011 season, after which she took the inventory/gardener position. Before coming to Polyface, she sold produce from her family’s market garden, along with homemade baked goods. This venture was mostly inspired by having read “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin. Having always loved the outdoors, animals, and gardening Leanna is excited about this coming year, all that she will learn, and how the Lord will use this job later on in her life.
