Faces of the Farm: Meet Calvin!

Posted on

Calvin arrives each year to TapRoot Farms from the south coast of Newfoundland, near the Burin Peninsula.  This is his ELEVENTH season at the farm, which makes him nearly tied with Josh and Patricia!  He said he's seen a lot of changes at the farm in that eleven years: "Everything has changed.  It has been a real learning experience, watching as the farm becomes more efficient". 

Calvin favourite crop to grow and eat at the farm is grape tomatoes.  He said he loves the smell when they are in the greenhouse.  On the farm, Calvin does various tasks, from transplanting and harvesting to maintenance of tunnels and other infrastructure.

Back in Newfoundland, Calvin and his wife Danette enjoy their new camper trailer.  Calvin also builds sheds and other woodworking projects to keep busy.  He says: "I've got to keep busy: Can't just do nothin'".  He will be here for at least 5 months again this season, and we're happy to have him as part of the TapRoot Team!
