Farm marketer in training

Hay now!! There's something about a field full of neatly lined bales that inspires creativity in young minds. In this case, Janel van Dongen suggested to her uncle, Ross Springford of Springford Farm in Nanoose Bay, that she and her family could re-arrange his hay bales to spell out the words "Springford Farm" as a way to promote the on-farm store. She later shortened it to simply FARM after realizing just how many bales would be required to spell out the full name! (Peter van Dongen photo)
