“I was taught that work can be fun, even if it requires effort, self-discipline, perseverance, and time.”
Growing up in Fulton County, OH, Olivia B. always seemed to get involved with work in agriculture. Her family maintained a large garden where they canned and froze their harvest at the end of summer – this is where her interest in growing food first cropped up.
Olivia lived in Michigan when she first heard about a new greenhouse being built by Nature Fresh Farms in Delta, Ohio: “I drove past the initial stages of construction while on my way to visit family. When I found out that a greenhouse was being built, I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of it.”
Working at Nature Fresh Farms has been a learning experience for Olivia: “All I had to offer Nature Fresh Farms when I started working for them was perseverance. It’s exciting to be a part of a company that values dedicated employees and is willing to teach them and help them advance their careers.”
Olivia spends a lot of her free time at home teaching her children how to make the most out of hard work – they are known to turn up the tunes and make work like cooking and cleaning into a fun experience!
