For the second summer in a row, it has been my pleasure to prepare Mr. S. Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A, Inc., some of Gardner Farm’s freshest peaches.  Pictured here with Mr. Cathy is one of my sisters and my oldest son, who happened to be the lucky ones working with me at the farm stand when Mr. Cathy stopped in on this particular day.  

Mr. Cathy always comes with a smile and goodies from Chick-fil-A, whether books, coupons, cows etc. — he is always giving!  On each visit, he will always ask the kids (and us adults too), “What does the cow say?”, and a correct response ( being ‘Eat more chicken!’) gets some sort of CFA treat.  It’s always a pleasure seeing him spread joy everywhere he goes!

I could go on and on about how Mr. Cathy is a living example and real inspiration to me, by his strong faith, great work ethic, generous heart and passion for what he does … yes, I could go on and on!  But, I am honored to have met and chatted with Mr. Cathy on several occasions as he has made stops into our family farm stand during the summer.
