Zack is from Jamaica but has lived over in Poughkeepsie for many years. He works in the big orchards pruning the apples in the early Spring and comes over to the farm each year to cut the excess suckers from the branches. He is a master at what he does. He can’t read or write as far as I can figure out but is strong as an ox. But when I call him after two or three words he knows just who I am and knows just how to get to the farm. When he comes he works all day and finishes about 20 trees. With all the snow on the ground, this year was a real challenge, but he keeps at it, never stopping until the end of the day.
