We've done quite a few front desk staff features but today we're switching it up a little bit with a behind the scenes feature of one of the guys that really makes everything happen around here, and we like to call him Farmer John... He plays such a huge roll in keeping our site in proper shape and making sure the animals are well taken care of. We asked a few questions to get to know him a little better...
Full Name: John MacKenzie
What people call you: Farmer John
What does your day-to-day look like on the farm: Oversee all farm production, animal husbandry, and chores.
Something you’ve learned while working here: How to drive a tractor
Do you have a favourite cow in the barn or animal in the petting zoo? Or least favorite? Explain. I like the red calf, he reminds me of my grandparents farm in Ontario.
Something we should know about you? Interesting or funny fact or a story from the farm: I’m new to farming day to day and love being around the animals and seeing them healthy and happy (yes animals can be happy). I got to be here for the birth of my first calf – Valentine – as he was born on Feb 14.
Thank goodness for Farmer John! Next time you're onsite keep an eye out for him and say hello!
