"Remarkable”. That was my exact thought after a couple hours spent at Smile Farms at IGHL. As I approached the Farm, I was welcomed by the staff that was delighted to have my colleagues and I as visitors. I admired the numerous flowers and plants that came in a variety of colors combined with the sunlight. Starting off in the retail store, I was greeted by many enthusiastic workers. These interactions filled my heart with joy as I was given numerous handshakes and even some hugs. The workers were excited to see new people and genuinely wanted to know about my day. They willingly shared information about their lives and were enthusiastic about their job. The time I spent with the employees truly warmed my heart. While I was already pleased with my visit, I was eager to see the rest of the property. As my tour continued, I caught a glimpse of greenhouses containing copious amounts of plants, garden beds with vibrant flowers and of course the coop in the back containing chickens, turkeys and peacocks. After leaving the farm, I am anxious to return. I loved having the experience of interacting with Smile Farm employees firsthand and seeing the results of their hard work. My visit exceeded all my expectations and I saw the true benefit and meaning behind Smile Farms.
