Quotes

"The problem with the mud is getting out here with the tractor," said Ackerman Farms employee, James Leigh. "you can get stuck pretty easily if there is too much mud. it just becomes a pain to pick. if it's too wet, we have to take a day off of picking in the field. there's some pressure some days to stay a little bit later and pick up some extra pumpkins."
"for 20 years we've done adequately. we can do better though, we can provide a better service. we're way behind our comparable counties and the level of service we provide our tax payers" said Ackerman
