Caleb has been with us close to seven seasons and had taken the reigns of managing the farm crew in the 2015 season. Though he was  only with us till September when he left for Paraguay as a Peace Corps volunteer.

Caleb will not be with us this season. He will be in Paraguay for a little over two years. We are not removing Caleb from our staff list just yet. After being in Paraguay you never know where life will lead him. Maybe back to Eagle Point!

Ace is our Market Mascot, he first came in and adopted us in Spring of 2015 and we quickly fell in love with him. He enjoys mousing in the back pond, eating and sleeping in the market and helps put a smile on all our customers faces (young & old) along with the workers. He has been a great addition to our Market staff as our Mascot!

Tina Mullen (Market Manager)

This is Tina's second year back as market manager. We were thrilled to welcome her back last year. If you need any help in the plant department or wondering how to make a certain recipe, Tina is the one to ask. She is an excellent cook, and an extremely creative gardener. She can help you plant your container garden or give you a new recipe for dinner. If you have been to Eagle Point, you have seen Tina and know what we mean. Looking forward to another great year with Tina at the market.
