This is Brianna and Tony's last week on the farm. They worked so hard this year and made Lake Divide farm run so much better because of it. Brianna's intense focus on details and order improved the workflow on harvest days immensely. Tony's quick moves in the field helped us shorten many a long day. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them both this year and I can't wait to see what they do next! And this is how we build our farm family.
We are also excited to say that Lizz will be staying on with us through the winter! It is pretty exciting to be able to keep one person on staff through our leanest times. More on team building later, but for now, I have got to get back out to garlic!
All the best!
