Simply put, Andy is the nuts and bolts of this operation. He has carried on his family's farming tradition and then some. What was once a simple farmers market stall selling vegetables, cut flowers and wreaths to the local community has turned into a blossoming business servicing gardeners and holiday gift givers across the country. He is a prime example that hard work and determination pays off. His down-to-earth attitude and extremely high energy level is an inspiration to his employees. As Lynch Creek Farm continues to grow, expect Andy to be right there leading the way.
Thanman is the key link between all areas of the company. He weeds the field. He manages our shipping operation. He trains our employees. He provides top-notch customer service. He works the farmers market. He helps advise our corporate clients during the busy holiday wreath season. He's smart. He's funny. Sorry ladies, he's also taken. He does it all. He's your classic renaissance man. In a nutshell, without Than, there would be a lot more bumps in the road as we grow this business.
If it wasn't for Patty, our dahlia fields would be grown over with weeds because we would be too busy trying to figure out what W-2 means or what expenses go where to focus on the plants themselves! As Office Manager, she performs every task with diligence. In fact, we're not even sure if she has ever made a mistake (if she has made one, she has done an exceptional job covering it up)! She is also our most popular company model, being featured on the Christmas wreath page at www.LynchCreekWreaths.com and in our annual wreath catalog. We all think the world of her!
Many years ago, Maddux approached the farm with a vision to expand beyond its local market. With his background in e-commerce and free reign to promote the farm, he has altered the path of Lynch Creek Farm and continues to help develop our marketing and business strategies. Maddux can't escape his share of pokes from fellow co-workers; his nails are just a little too clean to be considered a true farmer!
