Back from Vacation!

Posted on August 20th, 2021 by Daniel Zimmerli

Lara, Addie and I had a great time on vacation at Great River Bluffs State Park near Winona. We hiked kings bluff trail which had a spectacular view of the Mississippi River Valley. We also visited Winona for some donuts and generally enjoyed our little break from the farm. We're back, we're rejuvenated and we're ready to finish out the rest of the season!

Our farm staff did a great job holding down the fort while we were gone. They worked our harvest days and got everything harvested on time, they worked our farmers market stand in Mankato and had great sales and even got some Diary Queen on the really hot Thursday! On top of that they finsihed up some big jobs on the farm including getting the remainder of our garlic prepped for sale and they moved the red onions from their field curing location to our pack shed where they will finish curing.

On top of all of that, they even were noticed by the other vendors with their courtesy and professionalism. There may even been a hint of jealousy from the other vendor who commented on our staff. We're really proud of our staff and this farm would not be the same without them!
