Meet our Summer Staff:



Ashley is a veteran summer staffer here at Schwarz Family Farm. She graduated from HHS in May and will be headed off to UNK this fall to become a shaper of young minds in the form of an art teacher. She is also very tiny. Like, really small, guys. She basically comes up to my knees. But she's plucky and a hard worker, and that more than makes up for her diminutive stature. She is also a graduate of the local Tractor Safety course, meaning she is qualified to operate very large machinery. Which is funny, because she's, like, so small. Her spirit animal is an ant.

Chandler is a veteran summer staff member here at the farm. Later in July, he will be heading off to boot camp. Yes, people. It's true. He will be defending our freedom.

He dreams of one day being a professional bodybuilder or the star of a grilling show on the Create channel. His spirit animal is a Chihuahua or a Chimichanga, depending on who you ask.
