We hate to say goodbye...
Whitney Butler started with us in May 2012 as a Cashier Supervisor and was promoted to Lead Cashier Supervisor in January 2014. She then moved to Washington, DC to pursue a job in Finance.   Whitney happily returned to the farm in fall, 2015 when the Customer Service Manager position opened up and we’ve been happy to have her year-round since June 2015.  Ever pursuant in her goals of success and traveling abroad, Whitney has been accepted to Oxford-Brookes University in Oxford England and will study to obtain a graduate degree in Finance.  We are so excited for her to embark on her next adventure, but will miss her deeply.   Customer service is in excellent hands as Lauren Keereweer, who you already know and love, has stepped up into the Customer Service Manager role.    Whitney’s last day was this week, but be on the look-out for to make a guest appearance in October when she covers a weekend for Lauren. Good luck Whitney! The Farm loves you!
Lauren Keereweer as taken the wheel as the new Customer Service manager!  We think she's just perfect for the job! Congratulations Lauren!
Be sure to say hello to Lauren! 
From our Kitchen
Farm grown, farm made and bottled, our awesome hot sauce is back stock! Fresh, bright pepper flavor with plenty zingy, tangy notes, this sauce is perfect along side fried chicken, breakfast tacos, added to salsa or a Bloody Mary. How do you hot sauce?
Treat yourself to a Farm Made dessert, made in house with farm grown ingredients when available, like this farm grown beet cupcake with chocolate frosting or our famous farm grown zucchini bread, super moist and perfect for breakfast or a quick mid day snack!
