From Jan and Barry on working with William & Mary Dining
Our association with William & Mary Dining and their reliable income has allowed us to hire additional helpers, especially two cooks that can cook circles around me; thus lowering the overhead of our operation and the price of our product. Growing nutritious berries free of pesticides and herbicides requires a lot of intensive labor to keep the plants weeded and debugged.
"Little pickers come back, first, to ride the golf cart, second to pet our wonderful dog, Rena, and third to eat berries."
“The seniors return for the berries and to Barry's personal service of the cart ride and a chair from which to pick the bountiful berries. It's amazing to watch the initial realization of the little children that 'food grows on a bush and not at the grocery store!'”
