Mark Blandford earns long-awaited retirement celebration

Mark Blandford retired as the Mount farm manager in December 2021, but a family emergency prevented a retirement celebration for him. Mark agreed to stay on as a consultant for another year as the farm transitioned into new hands.

On Nov. 15, 2022, Mark finally got the retirement celebration he deserved for the 47 years he served on the Mount farm, the final 12 years as manager. Here are a few pictures from the day.

    Oh, Mark, I hate to see you go! But I guess you have done enough for us–from serving Mass as a cute little altar boy to all the environmental things you have done for the farm. You deserve to have some fun…Happy retirement!
