Yesterday was a much-anticipated day here at Fredericksburg Farms. We announced the new department leads and supervisors. To celebrate, we had an all-company lunch featuring Ryan’s famous barbecued chicken for which he was starting the fire at 5:30 am this morning. Everyone contributed sides and desserts and it truly was a feast. There was potato salad, beans, two pasta salads, a big pot of greens, deviled eggs, corn pudding, potatoes “Juanita,” pickled onions, rolls, several varieties of breads, meatballs, several cakes, pies, cupcakes, cookies, banana pudding, and the ever-popular Fredericksburg favorite…German sweet rice. Now we all need to walk the 8/10 mile to the gate and back to get our metabolisms working again after all of that food. Ahhhh!
