It’s been the Summer of the Epic Interns at Yokna Bottoms Farm! Boy, did we luck out when we got these two…
During their three months with us, Taylor and Julie spent countless hours in the field and at market – weeding, tending the chickens, hauling heavy loads of potatoes, waiting on customers, and everything else in between.
Over the summer, they lightened the load of the farm crew, earned our respect and admiration, and also became our friends.
It’s rare to find such incredible work ethic and the dogged determination it takes to get through long, hot, challenging summer days on the farm – but these girls have got it!
We’ll miss you, Taylor & Julie!
The Yokna Bottoms Family
