Apprentices

Our Apprentice manager and tour guide is Matt Rales from Bethesda, Maryland. Last year, Matt was a full-time apprentice and came back this year to work on Polyface. He gives tours and is Daniel's right-hand man when it comes to managing daily tasks and apprentice instruction. Matt loves training and working with our guard dogs, Jack and Faith.

He is currently living in Daniel and Sheri's basement apartment and we hope to keep him on for a long time. He is a very conscientious, hard working man.

Andy Wendt comes from Idaho and is a one-year apprentice. He has now been with us for one full year as of September 15th. He is going to be staying on for another 6 months or so and then possibly looking at running one of our rental farms in the area. He has been a great addition to the Polyface team.

He keeps Teresa and Sheri busy just keeping him fed. A side note, we went out to an all-you-can-eat pizza place and he ate 70 pieces of pizza without even breaking a sweat. Atlanta City, here we come! :)

Ben Beichler is also from Maryland. He was here for one year as a full-time apprentice and just left us on Friday at the end of his year. However, this is not the last that we will see of him. Ben plans to come back to Polyface on October 1st and manage the training of Matt and Amanda Young at one of our new rental farms in Bath County, VA. He plans to stay on with them for one year, teaching them and training them the Polyface way. One day he hopes to start his own farm.


Once Matt and Amanda Young get here and are settled in, I hope to introduce you to them and let you know about their venture here.
