The farm is up and running again and today is the first day of spring! Last Thursday, we welcomed four of our most senior workers back to Ontario from Mexico, and on Saturday we began pruning apples. Today they are working on our Honeycrisp apples. You can learn more about how they prune the trees here
Together, these men have a lot of experience and dedication to the farm. Francisco (second from left in the photo) is our longest serving employee. He has been with us since 1989, so this year will mark his 31st season. For Jesus and Marcelino, this will be their 12th seasons, and for Antonio (second from right), this will be year 9. They are happy to be back, and we’re extremely happy to have them!
PS – Only around 50 more sleeps until our own fresh Ontario asparagus is ready!!!
