All of a sudden, the parking lot is full of cars again. We had a slate full of field trips learning about strawberries on Wednesday, and a farm-full of families soaking up the springtime on Tuesday and Thursday. And Michele's been having so much fun with the bin of baby chicks in the market that she's decided to sign up for the Chick Program herself next year!
The Red Barn addition is in its final stage, there's new sod in front of The Stable, and several pallets of brand new beer barrels were deposited beside the cow the other day -- the semi driver didn't think he could make it all the way up to the Stone Haus.
It's a good time to be a farmhand.
We've posted this year's edition of the employee handbook on our website; please read it before you come to work, and bring a copy of the signature page along with you. Also please be sure to check the schedule regularly so you know when you're working.
Let's get out there and create memorable moments!

Listen to them talk about their fascinating process:
