This is Katie, my daughter.

She will be 17 in June, and has taken on the weekend packing and shipping for RSE.  It took me a very long time to relax my inner control freak enough to entrust her with this time consuming job, but she is careful and trustworthy, and has been seeing me do the same things over and over again for about 5 years now!  This job will augment her farm stand and milking duties at Simmon’s Farm until the farmer’s market season is in full swing.

Katie loves animals of all kinds, is smart, funny, and multi-talented:


Here’s a little interview I had with Katie:


What is your best childhood memory?

Visiting the Caldera in New Mexico with my family seeing all of the wildlife and nature. Seeing the herd of elk and coyote cubs playing was so amazing.

What are your interests?

Drawing, animals, music, art, food, sleep.

What do you want to do for a living?

Something with animals. A veterinarian is what I’m aiming for.(:

What was your biggest accomplishment?

Passing my AP Biology class.

What are your pet peeves?

Being nagged by my mom and liars.


Uh… thanks, Katie!
