News & Updates
Lately I’ve been thinking about how much I miss my teammates at the orchard. As the winter stretches slowly into spring, the days get longer and the cold dark of winter moves out, my heart turns back towards the orchard and the happenings onsite there. A version of “spring fever” perhaps; a version that seasonal operations know well; an eagerness to pull the team back together, to be a part of breathing success into the operation.
Andrew Carnegie says: “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”
At Wiard’s Orchards we are common people and year after year we strive for those uncommon results; delicious donuts, yummy caramel apples, refreshing apple cider, crispy sweet fresh apples, fun filled Country Fair days and fright filled Night Terror evenings for our guests. Working together as a team to bring uncommon results, yep, that is what spring fever is calling me back too.
