A Shout Out From Utah!

Hello Everyone,
I miss you all and I especially miss Alaska.  I can't wait for the summer, it just can't come soon enough!
Although I won't be involved in the managerial part of the business, I promise I'll be around and I plan to help my mom out with the especially fun parts of work- like updating the blog, plowing, and maybe occasionally going to the market.

Anyway, I have a lot of homework to do, so I don't have long to post.  I thought I'd just let you know about a few more mentions of our business in the news.  First of all, you can check out Future CEO Stars magazine to read an article about the business that I wrote after I won the NFIB award.  It's on page 12:  There's also a Teacher's Guide to this magazine that I found online.  It was fun to look at how teachers can use my article to teach kids about entrepreneurship.  One of the optinos was for people to write me a letter...either teachers aren't using my article, or kids aren't doing their assignments, because I have gotten no mail from them! :)

Also- Mom's been in the news for her involvement with the Alaska Rhubarb movement.  Check her out here: and here:  I do have to point out in the second article, there are no pictures of rhubarb.  What's labeled as rhubarb is actually swiss chard...just so no one thinks we  made that mistake!

Well I'm off, I've got a lot to do.  For those of you who may not have heard, I'm running as Alaska's candidate for National FFA Office at the National FFA Convention in October.  I'm very excited, but it takes a lot of studying, so I'm hard at work doing that.   If you'd like to keep up with what I'm doing to prepare, including my fun ag tours and experiences here in the lower 48, you can visit my new blog at  Have a fantastic FFA week everyone!

  1. Rhubarb is certainly one of our family favorites. I remember the Oberg farm with great fondness. Our rhubarb plants have a long history. They were on the family homestead on Fairview Loop Rd. and have provided many folks with great starts. We took starts with us when we moved into Anchorage and later when we moved back to Wasilla. When we left Alaska a few years ago, we took our rhubarb starts with us. Our favorite rhubarb products are Rhubarb Jelly, Rhubarb Cake, and Rhubarb Custard Pie.
