Dear loyal readers,
Big news this week! We are finally on the road to retirement, with the comfortable feeling that NMF will stay in good hands and will continue as always. (At our mid-seventies it’s about time!).
As the culmination of a six-year effort, we’ve finally figured out how to take the load off our shoulders and shift control of the farm and business to our stellar, 10-year employee, Jenni Glenister. (See below for a full rundown on Jenni.)
Over the past several years we have gradually delegated many responsibilities, especially on the production side, to our longer-term employees, led by Jenni.
Now Jenni has been promised, by the USDA, the operating capital she will need to get us to June, when our income will start again. She won’t be the owner yet, but over time we think she can take that role.
Moie and I intend to stay around indefinitely, helping, coaching, keeping up the NMF traditions that you, our customers, expect and appreciate.
So things are changing in a good way, and we are relieved, hopeful, and feeling ALMOST like retirees.
See you Saturday with a smile on my face!
