Why did you decide to come to work at CROPP?
Everything about Organic Valley appealed to me: products, mission, location etc.
How long have you been with CROPP?
Since April 2006
Why do you like working at CROPP?
My co-workers, facility, benefits (both monetary and extra activities). Great discounts on food that I love from a company that I love too.
What has been the best experience or day you’ve had at CROPP thus far?
Wow, hard to pin down one day/experience as there have been many. I speak to many amazing consumers—their stories make the "best experiences." I enjoy the P&Ws (our company meetings) a great deal. We also have very nice employee relations.
What’s your favorite perk/benefit?
It would have to be either the cafe or the employee discount on our products.
What’s your favorite Organic Valley or Organic Prairie product?
There are too many to pick one but if a have to.... Pasture Butter!
Describe your typical workday at CROPP:
Short version: Answering the phones and replying to emails from consumers.
Describe your commute:
Wonderful. 10 miles of beautiful countryside. Never know what I'll see—eagles, deer, turtles, new-born lambs/calves/foals. Always a treat, even when the weather is horrid.
What other types of jobs have you held?
Waitress, proofreader, vet assistant, sales—just to name a few.
What are your other interests or hobbies?
My husband and I run a lodging business on our property from April to Oct. so that's a BIG interest. My goats, mini horses and other critters would certainly qualify as a hobby (since they are "useless" livestock :). I also love riding my Harley.
