When my dad says “Jen, I haven’t seen a new post for a while,” I sit up and listen.  I’ll share a few recent photos. We also have a confession to make.  Most farmers at this time of year are in a panic.  There is SO MUCH to do to get ready for the upcoming season.  I think David and I would be in a much more full blown panic if we didn’t have such a great field crew shaping up this year.  Of course it is not 100% settled yet, but we are pleased that Bruce is still on board.  We are also feeling very grateful that two of our customers, Marshall Zuern and Benjamin Lee have joined the crew.  Marshall will be returning from Montreal at the beginning of May. We also have a spunky neighbour, Lori Maxwell, who will be with us part-time.  She also has a catering business called Bare Roots Catering.
