CSA/From B1 credibly fresh, certifiably organic food,” explained Maryellen. CSA members pay a fee and as early vegetables ripen and throughout the growing season – 27 weeks, June to November – receive a weekly delivery of a half-dozen fresh vegetables and, from Free Bird Farm, fresh eggs and chickens as well, all USDAcertified organic. “It’s allowed us to set our business up like a wholesaler,” Ken continued. “Everything in one truck, one truck to 2-3 stops in the city. Not 20 bunches of beets – 200 bunches of beats.” The next year, the minivan was replaced by a larger Econoline. The next year, by a refrigerated truck, as CSA membership rose to 320; another 100 are expected to join this season. Next year, an even larger refrigerated truck is in the offing. The foundation crops are carrots, broccoli and potatoes, but escarole, bok choy and other specialty greens help round out the offerings. With her writing background, Maryellen e-mails a weekly newsletter to CSA members that contains recipes and advice for preparing that week’s offerings. As farmers in Otsego County and the surrounding region seek to reinvent Upstate agriculture post-dairying, one phrase you hear repeatedly is “value added” – turning commodities into specialty products that demand higher prices along the populated East Coast. But the letters C-S-A comprise an alternate strategy, and people from Ellen Pope, Otsego 2000 executive director, to Chris Harmon, Milford supervisor, grass-fed beef grower and former CADE executive director, will tell you what Ken and Maryellen

are doing is a model to follow. “We weren’t sure about CSAs,” said Maryellen during an interview the other day in the couple’s 1858 farmhouse on windy acreage with a long view of the Mohawk Valley. “We thought of it as a big obligation. It takes a lot of knowledge to make that commitment.” As it happens, Ken and Maryellen had developed “a lot of knowledge” through a decade of striving to make their farming dream a reality. Ken, raised in Indiana, Pa., and a graduate of the University of Rhode Island, had spent his 20s working on other people’s vegetable farms, partly in New Mexico but mostly in the Northeast.

In Snowsuit, Gloves At Breakfast Table CSA/From B2 and was so full of energy that, after a day in the fields, he’d work out at the Hamilton Club, a local gym. There he met Maryellen, one of four daughters of John Driscoll, now-retired editor-in-chief of the Boston Globe; she was working parttime in the gym and fulltime at Cook’s Illustrated, the food magazine. She was soon captivated by Ken’s dream. “I always wanted to have my own farm, so I could get up and work every day,” said Ken, son of a PennDOT engineer and a school teacher, who was always an itchy boy while growing up, shifting in his seat, tapping his foot, eager to do something. “I love work. It keeps me grounded.” “I was going on a lot of faith,” said Maryellen. “I was going on a lot of faith in Ken.”

The two were soon ranging the countryside from Virginia to northern New England, looking for land, and they happened on the affordable 130-acre farm that would become their home. “This was one of the few places left where there’s a really good agricultural infrastructure,” said Ken, who can buy a John Deere part 10 minutes away in Canajoharie, or an International part just down the road. And so, in 1999, the couple embarked on their adventure, a vegetable farm, and also marriage. Their families gathered on the McKinley Road property for the event; when the wedding banquet was unveiled, flies swarmed from the pig sty in the barn and covered the walls of their new home, a happening now firmly part of Fruehstorfer-Driscoll family lore. Not only hadn’t the farm

been worked seriously in two decades, the farmhouse was in serious disrepair. Ken had it secured by winter, but the couple found themselves eating breakfast in their snowsuits, scarves and gloves. Maryellen spent 3-4 days a week at Cook’s Illustrated, while Ken spent evenings upgrading the house. The original plan was to sell free-range chickens, and Ken had soon lined up a number of restaurants, although competing with commercial food distributors was tough. “I spent quite a few years trying to figure out if I could make a business out of that,” said Ken. The other day, the first of several cycles of 100 chicks had just arrived; in a few days, they will be put out to pasture, growing to selling weight in eight weeks; Please See CSA/B4

Ken had also driven down to Pennsylvania the week before to pick up 600 pullets, Rhode Island Red layers for the egg end of the business. Early on, the couple picked up 10 bulbs of garlic

from a neighbor, “puny, weak-looking garlic,” said Maryellen, “and it” – Spanish roja, strong, punchy – “grew beautifully here.” Today, they sell 3-4 tons of garlic annually at the grandaddy of garlic festivals, in Saugerties, and save 80,000 head of seed garlic a year. A nice cash crop.

“We didn’t have a business plan,” said Ken. “We just wanted to live on a farm and raise our family here.” Daughter Alis joined them seven years ago; son Xavier, four years ago. Alis is a first grader at Canajoharie Central; Xavier, as did Alis, attends nursery school in Milford.

Before long, Ken had a five acres under cultivation. Then 10 acres, but he was maxing out. The couple recruited interns to help them out, but couldn’t find a dependable workforce willing to spend all day in the fields, weeding, bending and picking. Advertising on the Internet, “we never received a resume from anyone who worked on a vegetable farm,” said Maryellen.

“Our country does not have an agricultural labor force any more.” For the first time last year, the couple took advantage of state and federal guestworker programs, bringing in four workers from Guatemala who worked the fields from April 1 to November, then caught a plane for home at Albany International Airport. It worked out so well, the same four men are coming back. At first, Maryellen, a Latin American Studies major at Stanford, was a bit conflicted, but that eased a bit when she learned “after the drug trade, the primary source of income (in Guatemala) is from this program. It’s an effective way of stabilizing the economy.” The stable work force will allow Free Bird Farm to cultivate 30 acres this year, and a large new barn – a

new barn is a rarity in these part; it will house the vegetable-washing operation – is almost complete. (NBT Bank has been a dependable financing source.) Ken expects to max out at 50-60 acres. With Ken and Maryellen in their early 40s, where’s all this heading? “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?” Ken sometimes asks himself, and he replies, “On a farm.” He hopes by career’s end to have developed sufficient equity that if Alis or Xavier want to continue the operation, they will be able to do so. After 13 years of toil, it’s still a dream come true. “I can’t believe this is how I live my life,” said Maryellen as the kids ran around the pullet pen, getting to know the new arrivals. “How lucky I am.”

Vasse’s Resume Includes 25-Foot Cake For Toys R Us’ Quarter-Century Mark PASTRIES/From B1 place has a different style, different recipes. I’m taking my 29-year career and bringing it here.” In late spring, he will debut three custom desserts; the Opera cake, a cheese mousse and the resort’s eponymous signature dessert, a cognac-flavored shortcake with a layer of chocolate ganache and white chocolate mousse. A pistachio cake will be the Easter specialty, and the summer will bring a variety of fruit mousses, including raspberry, strawberry and lemon. “I don’t want people to get tired of desserts,” he said. “I respect the season. In fall, it’s apples and pears, in winter, it’s heavy chocolate and ganache. In spring, it’s early fruit. And in summer, when it’s hot, I make light fruit mousses and miniature desserts. Miniature pastries look spectacular when they’re all lined up.” Vasse apprenticed in a pastry shop in his native France, where he studied pastries, cakes and working with chocolate. “Since I was a kid, this is what I said I wanted to do.” He moved to the States in 1990, and from 1993 to 1999, he owned the White Plains Bake Shop in Westchester County, where he got to take his love of cake baking to extreme limits. He baked a 25-foot-long cake for the corresponding anniversary of Toys R Us. “They gave me a police escort,” he says. “If a cake like that breaks, there’s no repairing it.” Even when serving a roomful wedding guests, Vasse makes his cakes in one piece.

“Many people will have a small cake for the bride and groom and a sheet cake for the guests,” he says. “I can go up to 400 people in one piece. I make my own marzipan flowers, I do it all.” But giant cakes aside, miniature desserts and thin cake slices are part of his presentation. “I prefer to slice smaller so people can test a few things,” he says. “When I do a cake, everyone deserves to have it. If there’s a party, whether it’s a hundred people or two, I want to make sure they get the whole diversity of desserts. Everyone will find something they like.” As the hands on the clock start to drift towards the lunch hour, he brushes an apricot glaze on the strawberry tart to give it a glossy finish and puts it on the cart to take upstairs to the dining room. “I was told a long time ago by a friend, ‘What is better than a table with good food, good wine and good dessert?’” he says. “When you go out with friends, what is it for? To eat, to drink, don’t you agree?”

THURSDAY-FRIDAY, MARCH 29-30, 2012

Golf Fan, Oneontan Peter Jacobs, 75, Dies On Links NEW LISBON – Peter Jacobs, 75, who loved sports all his life – in recent years, golf most of all – died Saturday, March 24, after completing a round with a pal at Baywood Greens in Long Neck, Del. He was born June 3, 1936, in Twillingate, Newfoundland, one of twin sons (brother, Dick) born to Dr. Sherman Jacobs and Helen Cawley Jacobs. After his father’s residency, the family settled in Oneonta. Pete was active in many sports. He played baseball, football and especially basketball at Oneonta High School. He continued to play in town teams and on traveling teams. In midlife he shifted to softball, play-

ing in several leagues; pitcher was his position. He was also an avid bowler and bowled in league play at the Elks Club. Later, golf became his passion. His favorite course was Colonial Ridge, where he once shot a hole-in-one. He played his final round with friend Paul Franolich. They’d been looking forward to it, played a good game, had fun. Pete turned to put away his club and collapsed. His friend administered CPR, but Pete had left this life. He graduated from Broome Community College, served in the Air Force, and spent his entire career as a lineman at NYSE&G, retiring as a

chief lineman in 1992 after 31 years. He spent his first 30 years in Oneonta, but adapted well to country life in New Lisbon with his wife Flo. In addition to his wife, survivors include son Mike Jacobs and his companion, Cory O’Connor; daughter-in-law Angie Jacobs, and grandsons Bradley and Brett; daughter Kelly Jacobs-Smith, her husband Scott and their daughter Cassie, all of Niskayuna. He was a lifetime member of the Oneonta Elks, and a member of the Oneonta Vets Club and OHS Alumni Association. Pete’s body has been cremated and the ashes will be interred at the Mount

Vision Cemetery and on his homestead. The family will welcome friends 4-6 p.m. Friday, April 13, at the Lewis, Hurley & Pietrobono Funeral Home. A celebration of Pete’s life will follow at 6:30 p.m. at the Elks Club. An Elks Lodge of Sorrows Service is at 7 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made to Catskill Area Hospice, 1 Birchwood Drive, Oneonta, NY 13820 or to the American Heart Association, P.O.

Strategies to help you stand out from the crowd...

Dear Julia: As a graphic designer, you first have to make sure that your resume is touting your talents. By this, I mean use your resume to showcase some of your work, either by designing your resume in a unique manner, or by including a snapshot of your portfolio. It is great to have an online portfolio for review, but unfortunately if the hiring manager does not have time to view your work online they will not get a sense of your creative talents. By including a mini-portfolio on your resume, your work will be seen immediately, and will better prompt the reader to visit your site and view more of your work. This also creates a much more interesting resume and, when coupled with strong content, is sure to make your resume stand out from the crowd.

As the ‘Dear Sam’ mailbox receives so many questions like this from people with very diverse backgrounds, I thought I would take this opportunity to highlight other creative tactics you can use to make a better first impression. Here are just some of the issues that come up time and time again from candidates who are having a hard time differentiating their skills from their competitors’. For the administrative assistant: The most common complaint I hear from administrative assistants is that they do not have any accomplishments to highlight on their resume. Most feel that they have played a supportive role their entire career, and therefore cannot attribute any achievements solely to their efforts. But I have yet to work with an administrative assistant who didn’t have achievements of some kind — such as increasing organizational effectiveness by revamping the filing system, performing their job despite limited articulation of responsibilities, or even helping others better perform

their jobs by seeking out and taking on bigger tasks. By showcasing where you have driven value for an organization, you will really position yourself ahead of the competition.

For the teacher: One of the fields I enjoy writing most about is teaching, because there are a number of ways you can make a resume stand out as a teacher. First, instead of opening your resume with your full name, use your teaching name, such as ‘Miss Charlie’. This unique approach immediately positions you as a teacher and engages the reader. I also find myself using imagery a lot on teaching resumes. Often this will be something as simple as ABC blocks, but I have also created teaching resumes with images of children playing, writing on the blackboard, etc. These images grab the reader’s attention and make a case for the strength of the content in the resume. Lastly, if you have them available, I suggest adding written comments you have received from parents and students. You can even present them in a handwritten-style font to add a personal touch to your resume. These testimonials, particularly if they are from your students, reinforce the claims on your resume and present an outsider’s view of your core competencies. For the salesperson: One of the biggest mistakes I see in sales resumes is a lack of quantifiers. As a salesperson, your resume has to include quantifiers pertaining to your goals and actual achievements. Of course, if your quotas are small, or if you had trouble meeting your objectives, then quantifiers have to be used sparingly, but there are almost always ways to incorporate numbers into a sales resume. If you worked with a smaller company, try to quantify your successes in percentages as opposed to dollars. Doing so will keep you in the running for those

opportunities in which you would handle much higher volumes. I also find that some of my clients in the sales arena have never had solid goals and objectives, and therefore think that they don’t have anything to measure their performance against. If this is the case, try to compare the results you achieved with those of your peers, your competitors, or industry averages. Lastly, if you just can’t use quantifiers, maybe you have some sales-related awards you can showcase at the beginning of your resume, comments from clients, or even pull quotes from your annual reviews. For the multi-talented job seeker: I work with a lot of clients who tell me that, for a number of reasons, they are open to many different opportunities and can do pretty much anything. While this is wonderful for expanding the client’s prospects, it does make writing an effective resume more difficult. For clients in this situation, I showcase their background in the professional experience section, which will essentially stay the same regardless of the job opportunity. I then incorporate a list of competencies to allow for a very easy and quick way for the client to tailor their resume to each opportunity. I like to place this list down the left side of a resume in its own column or, if I don’t need to be quite as extensive, at the end of the qualifications summary. This competency list can include any type of experiences or skills that represents a person’s notable strengths. It is best if the job seeker develops a general set of these brief noun phases, and simply tailors them to each opportunity, based on the keywords in the job description that are aligned with their experience and education. This is a very simple thing anyone can do to create the tailored feel that hiring managers are looking for.
