We thank our exchangers!
Our Farm Share program is packing its final boxes this week. Every Thursday evening for the past 20 weeks, a group of enthusiastic and dedicated members of our farm family have convened at Nash’s packing shed and assembled all the Farm Share boxes. They are our work exchangers, who pack the boxes in exchange for a discount on their farm shares.
The crew in the photo above represent a typical group. Some have been exchangers for several years, others are new to the program. From left they are: Bethany Thompson (first season), Carolyne Shephard (fourth), Jeremy Drennen and Amanda Drennen (third), Sid Maroney, Teresa Thorson (sixth), and Rachel Loucks (first).
Other exchangers are Vivian Gaither, David Kell, Tim Walls, Judy Hubers-Brandt, Crystal Bennett, Brigitte Moran and Stephanie Parker. These people have made it possible for us to do the Farm Share program and we wish to thank them for their hard work late into the evening, in a cold room, making sure the packing shed was cleaned up and ready to go for the following day. Our exchangers are the greatest!
A message from Susan Baker, Farm Share Coordinator
I’d like to thank everyone who helped to pack the boxes this season—the regulars who sign up year after year and the new folks who jumped right in and got it done. You make my job a pleasure and I’d love to work with all of you again. And a big thank you to Rachel, the queen of the shed, who always had everything organized, and Sid and Patty, for all their support. And of course, our amazing crews who supply us with all the wonderful items for our boxes. And last but not least, all of our amazing Farm Share members, who support our farm and our vision of a healthy, local, organic food system. It truly does take a village.
