“I’m grateful to Lloyd and Hopie for offering Sam and I the chance to work with Peace & Plenty in distributing locally grown, organic blueberries to the public and for warmly guiding us in learning how to rake and process berries while remaining ever open to fresh opinions and the possibility of innovation. Lloyd’s balance of knowledge and humility concerning his trade is engaging and a welcome trait in an employer. Raking is satisfying, transparent work that brings people closer to the land and to one another. It’s vital for people to understand the sources and origins of what they typically only see packaged on store shelves and to gain that understanding by their own hands. This experience offered me that opportunity to grow.”
“Potato Hill was a luxurious setting in which to relax after a day spent in the blueberry fields or hiking among resident beech, maple, moose, and ever reclusive black bears. Enjoying breakfast in the presence of a luminous mountain view beckons one to venture out into the world–not that imposed reality of concrete and steel, but the natural world: ever present, ever resilient, and ever awaiting our return to the community of life. When sitting around the evening fire, blanketed in starlight and nocturnal verse, appreciate your position in the constellations.”
Sam and Ray thank you for your hard work making a successful 2013 season and Happy Trails wherever you may go!
