Brendan Stiteler, the field manager at our Mort Brooks Memorial Farm at Awbury Arboretum, is moving on to pursue new farming opportunities closer to where he lives with his family in Media. Brendan has farmed with us for the last three seasons and has worked tirelessly to increase the productivity and efficiency of our farms. He was in charge of our greenhouse and improved the quality of our transplants, which is the first step to a strong growing season. He implemented the addition of new crops, such as winter squash and onions, that have been huge successes with our Community Supported Agriculture shareholders. He has cultivated a loyal following of cooperators and shareholders who have volunteered at our farm at Awbury for multiple seasons, and he has mentored three different field assistants.
We will miss you, Brendan, and we wish you the very best in your upcoming farming ventures!
