My name is Angela Durbin and I enjoyed 5 fulfilling years working at Forsythe Family Farms. I continue to help out with Markham Fair and their Fall Harvest Season. Not only did I learn so much about farm life but working on the farm proved to be rewarding and beneficial for both my physical and mental well-being. It was my home away from home! I developed many friendships, especially with Jim and Leslie. They helped give me the confidence and inspiration to be creative, think on my feet and discover what I wanted out of life.
A memorable time on the farm was when I got lost in the corn maze - I went in when it was daylight and found my way out when it was dark! Some favourite highlights include: working with children, learning to drive a tractor - go figure!, greeting customers, booking tours, composing and singing the "Forsythe Farms" song which you can watch below.
....Although, if this Covid-19 lasts much longer, I may have to rewrite the song!
