Years of Service at Pahl’s Market: 4 years (I started when I was 15 years old)
Job Responsibilities: I have been working at Pahl Farms doing everything from planting in the garden center as well as the field to repairing equipment. I guess you could say I am a jack of all trades. I hope to be a future farmer.
Love of the Job: I love watching all of our hard work and commitment pay off when fresh high-quality vegetables come into season. This is rewarding in and of itself.
• My father’s name is Dan and my mother’s name is Lynne
• I have three sisters: Kearston, Brooke, and Morgan
• I have a black and white Cockapoo named Dutch
Favorite Month of the Year: My favorite month of the year is July because the vegetables are planted and it is time to care for them and watch them grow.
Hobbies: My favorite outdoor activity is growing vegetables especially when the weather cooperates. I also enjoy golfing and playing the guitar.
The farthest you have traveled from home: I traveled to Florida in 2008. I will never forget how it felt when I stepped off the plane because the air was so clean. The Florida climate was a breath of fresh air.
Three things on your “Bucket List”:
• See the Gettysburg Battlefield

• Make the most out of everything I have now and in the future
What do you miss most about being a kid: I am not old enough yet. I am still a kid.
First thing you bought with your own money: My 1952 Farmall H Tractor.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do: I would buy a farm somewhere peaceful, build a nice shop and collect more and more and more tractors. My philosophy is, “Spend it because you can’t take it with you.”
Favorite Movie: Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Favorite Song: Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”
Hardest thing I’ve ever done: I don’t like to say anything was the hardest thing I have ever done. I like to take each challenge as it comes and do my best to conquer it. Getting through challenging things with a steadfast commitment makes us stronger.
