Are You Covered Enough? We Weren’t

By   /  January 27, 2014  /  Comments Off on Are You Covered Enough? We Weren’t

Bruce and Beth are good farmers and smart business people. They’re the last people you would expect to face the situation they’re facing after fire destroyed two farm buildings. They share their experience being under-insured to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, and to ask for something they rarely ask for: Help.

About the author

Bruce spent eleven years in the classroom teaching science and mathematics to grades kindergarten through 12. He received his M.Ed. from Antioch University New England in Keene, NH. From 1999—to 2005 he directed North Country Camps, a summer residential camp focused on wilderness trips with farming offered as part of an extensive in-camp program. He has served on several boards: VT Grass Farmers Association, Aikido of Champain Valley, Rural Vermont, and at present, NCC Chief’s. Beth is an artist, master gardener, and organizer, who also spent many years directing wilderness trips through both Wilderness Ventures and North Country Camps. Beth received her M.Ed from Lesley College in Boston in Creative Arts after a B.S. in Business Administration at the University of Southern California. She is no stranger to running her own business; her experience as an entrepeneur began at age 12, with successful business forays into community mapping, hand-painted clothing and adventure travel. She currently is the sales manager, bookkeeper, and marketer for the farm. Beth and Bruce enjoy the farming lifestyle and can’t think of any better way than sharing it with their son David and his younger sister Bryn. When they are not farming, they are skiing with our family, taking hikes, biking and watching soccer games.
