I am Rhea Hamlin and I am the Marketing and Communication Specialist for the TapRoot Fibre Lab. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and share with you what I will be doing here at TapRoot Fibre Lab.
My education background is in marketing and management. I attended Nova Scotia Community College, where I graduated with a diploma in Business Administration, marketing concentration. From there, I transferred to Mount Saint Vincent University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in marketing and a minor in management.
As the Marketing and Communications Specialist, I will be conducting market research for the TapRoot Fibre Lab--identifying target markets and strategic partnerships, developing client relationships, developing a marketing strategy, and managing social and digital media profiles.
Personally, I love to cook and bake and am always trying new recipes. I have been vegetable gardening since I was five years old--I like seeing a small seed grow into something I can eventually eat--and I volunteer with my local 4-H club and Regional Development Society.
Assorted TapRoot Free Range chicken - whole or pieces $22.50

Nathans animal update:
Sundays storm presented some real challenges. There was so much snow that not even the farm tractor could make it to the barn, Sunday afternoon. On Monday morning, although the snow had stopped, it was still quite windy and there was lots of blowing snow. Josh tried for three hours to clear a path to the barn from church street, approx 2kms away. Only to discover the wind was filling in his path with snow almost as fast as he could clear it. Meanwhile, knowing the animals would need some attention, I snowshoes over. The door to the barn was completely buried, so I had to crawl in a window. The power was out in the barn, other than that everything was OK.
We are getting our first batch of chicks in 2 weeks, I'm clearing out the room in the barn where the chicks will brood, I'll lay down some shavings and make sure the brooder lamps are working.
Thank you very much, and we hope you have a warm week, without too much shoveling.
As of now, 9:05 AM we are not plowed in any direction.
Josh and Nathan both snowshoed to Canard this morning.
Good news is that the squash barn did not freeze. Malcolm kept the fire going and that was enough to keep it from freezing until the power came back on early this morning at 1:30AM. (the power keeps the grain feeding into the grain burner and the fans running)
In other news, the water is all frozen in the warehouse.
Just a reminder that we will not be doing deliveries today. We hope that we will be back in action tomorrow.
