People on the farm in 2015

Posted 6/8/2015 11:00pm by Peter & Bernadette Seely.

We are pleased to have Kay Moody take over for our Anneke the managing of the packing of the boxes on Mondays and Thursdays. Kay has worked alongside Anneke for about eight years, and is aided by a super bunch of worker shares on both of these days. In the office, Anneke is teaching the ropes of the organizing of the deliveries, as well as some of the communicating with you all, to her younger sister (and fourth of our five children) Esther, so you’ll be beginning to see Esther’s name, or hear Esther’s voice, in some of our communications with you. (Anneke, by the way, is off to a great books college in Tennessee in mid-August.) Out in the field, we are blessed with the return of at least a half-dozen Sheboygan and Plymouth folks, including a couple Hmong women who have been with us for over twenty years. As some of our summer high school-aged helpers leave for college and other jobs, a new crop of younger workers — often their younger siblings — take their place, and we’ll have about 8 teenagers working for us part-time for us as well. New this season to help us full-time include Adrian Lee and Nichole Kloss, who look forward to having their own farm in the near future, and Chad Ignatowski, whose background of welding and fabricating for a few different Sheboygan firms becomes very handy as we continue to attempt to use, and repair, or fabricate from new, equipment that allows us to easier manipulate soil, seeds, plants, weeds, and water! (And people, too!) A bigger lift gate on our truck, for example, allows to more safely move the boxes from the truck our much beloved pick-up sites.
