What is Red Jacket, Real People? We're proud to be a family business and we look at each employee as a member of that family regardless of who they're related to. The people that make up Red Jacket Orchards are the true drivers of the business and without them, we don't know where we'd be. We're excited to highlight some of our employees in an ongoing series called Red Jacket, Real People where we'll feature quotes and content from our employees to allow you to get an inside look at our Red Jacket Orchards family. Follow along using #RedJacketRealPeople to see profiles and quotes from our employees in the coming months.
Kathy, our new account specialist, joined us in the last couple of months and while she is new, she's been a fan of RJO for years as she grew up in the Finger Lakes. Welcome Kathy to the RJO family and learn more about her below. "I grew up in the Finger Lakes area and Red Jacket Orchards was always the ‘go to’ place for fresh fruit. When making the decision to come back home and the position here was opening, it just felt right to make this my second home. I love the history of the orchards, how much it’s changed and, in many ways, stayed the same over the years. More importantly, the core values have remained the same. In my free time I enjoy riding on the back of my boyfriend's motorcycle, cooking, baking, drawing, painting, sewing, gardening, and doing anything creative. The way everyone works together as a team to make it all happen is very exciting. I love being part of this company."
