Employee Spotlight - Ruth Magrum

Posted 12/6/2016 9:07am by Renae Schlatter.

Today we're continuing on with our employee spotlight from 2016.

Ruth was our first full time, full season intern. She worked with us from May 1 through September 30. Ruth lives in Ida, Michigan, and during her time here she stayed in a camper we have about two miles from the farm. We had her on all sorts of different jobs: milking cows, feeding calves, feeding/moving chickens, gathering and packing eggs, hauling hay, packing orders, making cheese, and more! It was really inspiring for me to witness her blossom from her first day until her last day. I know we enjoyed and appreciated having her with us for the season, and hope that she learned a lot and enjoyed her time here as well!
