Favorite Winder Farms Product: I can't limit it to just one. I would say chocolate milk, pumpkin chocolate chip bread and applewood bacon. And yes, I have been known to have all three of them for breakfast!

Favorite Winder Farms Memory: Seeing some of our maintenance employees dress up with antlers and red noses while doing a reindeer dance for a photo shoot for the Men of Winder Farms benefit calendar—it was only a joke, but they didn't know it at the time!
