I don’t think we’ve ever had this many cars here at once. Oh sure, we’ve had more people. We’ve had busloads of people show up but this is the first time a farm event has had parking that stretched all the way around to the front of the house. If you look in the background you can see the barn way off in the distance. And this isn’t even all the cars, this was just the first time I could snap a picture!
We had a forecast of rain for the morning but as it turns out, we had a perfect day for everyone to come and visit. It was also our first test of the new store layout with a large crowd. In the old days, more than about 6 people in the store and you were bumping into one another. Now with the new layout, we had 30 people wandering around and it wasn’t crowded at all. Of course, we’d opened up the stock room for extra space but it was nice to see that we can handle a larger crowd now with comfort.
Many thanks to everyone on the Wake County agribusiness council for their hard work in putting this trip together, especially our awesome President Dale Threat-Taylor!
