Tafel Spitz

I never  knew I could be a farmer. The quality of food grown by chefs used is unsurpassed.

I remember going to Stayner to pick up chicks. Turns out they were turkey chicks. I also went with Michael to the Katy Livestock market and bought and raised my own pigs.

Kümmel Kind

I stayed for two years I met another stagier Pippi Marlboro, fell in love, and now we both are working at Raymonds in St.John’s Newfoundland.
