Now THIS is how I like to start my Monday! With a phone call from FedEx telling me we just won their $25,000 Small Business Grant Contest. ….long pause… “Wait, are you serious? You wouldn’t joke around with me, right, because we worked so hard on our application, it would be really uncool if you were pulling my leg right now.”
But no, it’s not a joke. We DID win the FedEx grant competition and we WILL be receiving $25,000 to put toward our business and growth plan. YEAH! Huge thanks to FedEx for believing in our family, our farm and our goats – and a special shout out to Sean (pictured right), our FedEx driver, for braving the back roads of Vermont every single day – through snow squalls and mud pits – to bring our farmstead goat’s milk caramel sauces to the world. Thanks Sean! Now, time for a jig! …or THIS DANCE.
