It’s been a busy past couple of weeks. I’ve know, I’ve said this before, but we have been really challenged to push the envelope here at the homestead. We are growing through many exciting experiences!
I will do my best to get y’all caught up on homestead happenings by backtracking a few weeks (insert rewinding sound here)
Out of the blue, we got an email from a Fortune 200 juice company who wanted to rent our facility for a two day conference. Of course, we were somewhat incredulous and thought “really?” And get this, they also wanted breakfast and lunch for their employees for the two days! Eeeks! With that request, we sought out and partnered with a local chef (& farm stand customer) to put on a “first class” spread made with local, seasonal foods (and what a spread it was!)
Honestly, I didn’t know how we’d pull everything off, considering we’ve never done this before. Thankfully, we had a lot of practice with all the events we’ve been hosting over the last decade.
Happy to say, they enjoyed the “organic” experience and the food was a smashing hit – not much leftovers (that’s a good sign) They felt it more conducive to their “brainstorming session” than if they’d been sitting in a conference room with no windows. Being in a semi-outdoor environment allowed them to get their creative juices flowing.
