Thank you for the sunshine, the beauty of our community, our friends, our family, our church family, the blue sky, the blue water, the caring people at Scandia Village. Thank you for the difference Camp Zion makes in so many lives. Thank you for our terrific customers. Thank you for the cross.
It’s a good day at Seaquist’s for many reasons:
The sun is shining in Door County!
Zach is in the Seaquist Machine Shop.
Dale is working on his Fordson tractor.
Cole has a smile on his face – probably because of Lisa!
Kristin walked to work today, – through a cherry orchard and an apple orchard.
Heather is heading out of town on a little vacation.
The others are all busy too, including Jim, Robin, Lisa, Justin, and all the other helping hands.
GOD is good!
Officially, Robin Seaquist is Jim’s administrative assistant, whether it is summer, winter, spring or fall – but she doesn’t stop there! She works in the office of Seaquist Orchards, and loves what she does! Winter is the time to analyze how we spend our time, our money and our energies, and Robin works on all of those aspects of our business. Whether it’s analyzing insurance needs, tax information, government requirements, workmen’s compensation or any other number of things, Robin does it. Mountains of paperwork, payroll, hundreds of phone calls and often unexciting work doesn’t bother her, although she looks forward to her days off, hoping to find time to settle in with a good book or perhaps put a new coat of paint on some walls. Spring usually finds Robin in Florida for a few days, at least, and as soon as it’s warm enough outside, you can see her working in her garden and flower beds here at home.
Seaquist Orchards is a busy place, even during the winter months, and especially for Jim Seaquist!
This winter has been especially hectic for Jim, as he has been planning and advising on the building of our new production facility, located next door to the farm market. Be sure to check out our new facility, where you will be able to watch us make jam, press apple cider, and grade our apples. Jim is Chairman of the Board of Cherrco, an innovative cooperative marketing organization that markets cherries throughout the country. If Jim isn’t flying to and from Michigan for meetings, he can be found in his office, working on land purchases or leases for orchards, preparing for the upcoming cherry harvest season and for the processing of the fruit at Seaquist Processing, in Egg Harbor. During his free time during the winter, Jim enjoys ice fishing, hunting, being with his family, reading, and snowmobiling. However, cherries are never very far from Jim’s thoughts!
